I have been trying for a few years to get rid of the weeds shown in the photo and have tried lots of different weed killers but no luck with getting rid of them, i do not know what they are called but they are a nightmare.
I see Dandelion, and Wild Dill. Both are edible!
Getting rid of both will be very difficult, since they reseed readily. This will take a few season. The first will be killing off any living plants (I use boiling water for this, since it won't poison anything), and the second will be making sure to kill off any new instance.
Make sure to kill anything before it flowers, or you may be starting over!

How do you grow dill inside and how do you keep it from short and stocky instead of of high and spindly
To keep it from getting leggy during the winter, you probably need a grow light or fluorescent light. Here are two articles that will help you with your indoor dill growing:
I bought packeted dill seeds and grew them in a medium sized pot. I spray mist water everyday if the soil is dry. I live in a cold climate weather (about 3°C right now) so we only get a bit of sunlight. So the pot is by the window. They germinated and grew extremely thin and long and they can't stand upright. Very flimsy. Is this normal?
Your pot should be deep enough for the plants to grow a tap root. Your plants may need some artificial light and a bit of fertilizer. The soil should be fairly warm, so perhaps growing by the window is a little too cold for them.

My vegetable garden pH is 6.9 to 7.1 and beets,radish,carrot will not develop. Stems are green and growing but no fruit.I can grow plants that produce above grown but nothing below ground.
Your soil might be a little on the acidy side. Also, if the soil contains too much sand, or if it's too solid or compacted, it may be preventing the vegetables from developing. They may not be getting enough sunlight. It's not clear what you're finding when you pull them up, but there may be pests eating them before they can develop. Here's an article that might help:
Should I germinate the seeds first?
This can be planted at any time it is mild. 25 degrees is the killing point, so you can go until it stays around those temperatures. This is best seeded, directly, in the spot that you want it to grow.
Here are some articles that will help you with planting times for some other plants, as well as care for dill:
I am recovering from foot surgery and my dill had to fend for itself. It has grown lush and beautiful on its own, with no flowers. We had our first hard frost last night and I hobbled out before the sun hit it and harvested all of it. It’s better looking , with better smell in November than it had been all summer! Lol! My question is, instead of freezing it all, which I do, can I waterbath can it in brine with garlic for use during the year? It’s lovely with tomato, cucumber and onion with a bit of sunflower oil. But veg has been canned before surgery and store bought just isn’t as good at this time, or anytime, of year.
You could brine it, but it is usually dried and stored like that. Glass is best.
the dill is getting tall. I plan to dry some of the hers. I want to keep them growing well but not got to seed or flower too early in the season. I keep some cuttings in water in my kitchen for easy access.
Sure! We have plenty of reading to help keep you on top of your plants' care:
