Happy Sunflowers

The sunflowers along the side of the garden are very happy this year. With our cool evenings and shorter sunlight than what is normal in the valley, it is a rare year when we actually get the sunflowers to ripen with tasty seeds. This are more just to add a splash of color in  the garden.

We can have a frost any day, we even had one day already that dipped into the 30’s during the first week of September. Once we have a frost the sunflowers will be done for the year. If the frost holds off until mid October, I may just have a taste of the sunflower seeds for a change, but I’m not going to hold my breath.
