i'm in love with our sunflowers.. we were so happy that we got to see the first one open to greet us the morning that we left for nova scotia, and greeted by all of their smiling faces when we arrived home. we will certainly do more sunflowers next year! they are the biggest things we have started from seed, it's so exciting to see something so big come from a tiny little seed. nature is so magical..
next year we will also try a variety of different kinds of sunflowers, some for [edible] seed, and some for decoration [and to attract more bees]. we will use these and other tall varieties of food bearing plants such as corn along our fence line to create our own little private green space in the heart of the city.
