Until recently, the fresh-herbs-in-deep-winter department was mighty small, consisting mostly, if not entirely, of parsley, with the occasional bunch of watercress thrown in to relieve the monotony. Then, boom! As greengrocery grew chic and fresh produce acquired cachet, along with the kiwis and colored peppers came an expansion of available "fresh" herbs. Because tender herbs are among the most fragile-flavored of growing things, ill-suited to major transport or long storage, the results of this expansion are mixed.

Look, up in the sky, over the Vet! It's a pickle blimp! That hasn't happened, but don't be shocked if it does. Pickle mania has been spreading across the Dill-aware Valley since last Sunday, when the Eagles, sipping pickle juice to prevent cramps in steamy Dallas, crunched the Cowboys, 41-14. Want to dunk someone in a Giants uniform in a tank spiked with pickle juice? Would you relish a "Pickle Power" T-shirt? Wish to be the lucky fan who wins a year's supply of pickles?

At concession stands, there was a deluge of dill T-shirts and snacks. In the tailgating lot, ribs, burgers and chicken were rivaled by a plethora of pickles. And in the stands, signs featuring the green gherkins waved and fluttered. Long before the Eagles went sour on the field during the team's home opener against the New York Giants yesterday, fans were showing their passion for pickles. After hearing last week that Eagles players may have won their game against the Dallas Cowboys because many were drinking pickle juice to stay hydrated, fans have jumped on the briny bandwagon, chugging the juice and even slurping down water ice flavored like Vlasic dills.

If you have an herb garden, be sure to make some room for dill. This flavorful herb will reward you twice: once with fragrant feathery leaves - luscious in all sorts of light dishes - then with dill seeds. They're great for making pickles or flavoring potato salad. If you're not a gardener, you might want to harvest fresh dill leaves in the supermarket. You can have a steady supply if you chop the leaves and freeze them in plastic bags. "Dill" is from a Saxon word that means "to lull.

Give Mark Dill a thunderstorm to watch and he's happy. Give him a good snowfall and he's entertained for hours. A tornado can be cause for celebration. Dill is not a lover of disaster. He is a weather-watcher, and a meticulous one at that. A member of the Association of American Weather Observers and the Atlantic Coast Observer Network, the 33-year-old West Chester resident helps the National Weather Service more accurately predict the meteorological future by giving detailed observations of local weather conditions.

When Stephen Dill graduated from Delaware County Christian School in 1968, there were 26 students in his class and only 300 in the entire school. Now, in his first year as the school's headmaster, the student body is more than three times that size, and the school is split into two campuses in Newtown Square - kindergarten through fifth grade at a former public elementary school on Bishop Hollow Road; grades six through 12 at the main campus at Malin and Goshen Roads. Dill has seen most of those changes firsthand, having spent only a year of his career elsewhere.

In years past, Chester was renowned for its shipyard and its auto-assembly plant - both long since gone. It is still home to manufacturers of everything from bread rolls to tissue paper and chemicals. Now Stanley and Christine Coleman would like to see their hometown become famous for another product: gourmet pickles. About three years ago, a good-natured challenge to Stanley Coleman by his father-in-law, Dwight Greene, about who could make the best pickle led Coleman to begin developing his own trademark combination of pickle brine and spices.
