Do you have cow parsnip there? This could be the seed head to that; they get real tall.

*couldn't smell either dill or fennel...

CourtneyVerk 10 years ago

These were growing alongside of a gravel trail. I could smell either dill or fennel. Each was an independent stalk and they were around shoulder height. I stand 5'8 tall.

Was it growing along a roadway or railroad right of way? Chances are, then, that it is fennel. It tends to spread & naturalize that way. Fennel will also have a thick base with many stalks, where dill usually has a single stalk. The smell gives it away, though.

Dill or fennel or caraway seed
