  1. My daughter’s been asking to plant sunflowers lately. Any tips?? Did you grow them from seed or seedlings?

      We do seeds. I actually planted a little late this year and then it was severly hot. We plant in a part of pasture also, but when we planted no rain and hot sun so those never even grew at all. Maybe next year. She will love them. They grow so nice and big and are so pretty. Look forward to pics next summer!

  2. Aw. I always enjoy your sunflowers. Thanks for posting a pic!

  3. Not the last sunflower! We will have ours until the frost kills them – or the big winds blow them down. I had a couple well over 20 ft tall and the last storm took them out. I save the seed heads for chicken snacks in winter and plant whatever is left.

      Mine took a big hit in July/August when it was so extremely hot. I was gone one week and they never recovered. I just lopped all the stalks down this weekend. Sad.
