The Great Sunflower Has Arrived
Perhaps one of the most rewarding days in the garden each summer is to walk among the striking sunflower that were planting in early spring. Each year since I began growing sunflowers I could not help but think of planting more in the upcoming year. I wonder if there will ever be a year where I feel satisfied at the amount of sunflowers that so gracefully bloom in the veggie garden. I suppose I just can't get ENOUGH of the Midwest Sunflower.
This year I planted 8 different variety of sunflower. The photo above is a 10 foot tall Sunflower that I grew from a seed packet purchased at Target Sean Conway collection. It is beautiful!
Happy Summer Everyone!
