Here are one of my sunflowers. This one in particular is working on growing it’s huge flower. This is a Mammoth sunflower and it’s expected to be over 8 feet tall with large flowers. If all goes well the flower will bloom and when it dies it will create delicious sunflower seeds.

    Oh, how fun! My sunflowers haven’t even emerged from the ground yet (well, they may have after today’s rain–I haven’t had a chance to check). When the seeds start to form, do make sure you watch for birds. The birds around my garden loved my sunflowers, and they were stripped clean before I thought the seeds could possibly be ripe.

    Thanks everyone, I was warned by neighbors that you have to start early in our area. Yesterday one of the small hybrid ones started to bloom. I’ll be posting pictures soon.

    Sunflowers were the first plant I had as a child, about age 5. This plant started me on gardening.
    I look forward to your future posts!!! 🙂
