Our sunflower garden came in beautifully this year.
There are so many bees feasting on the flowers that the garden hums.
We’ve been selling freshly cut sunflowers at the market and we have heads and flowers drying in the basement. One or two of the heads provide enough seeds for an entire large garden.
We’ve been enjoying the company of the goldfinches who come for the sunflower seeds in the bird feeder.
In a few months the seeds we’re harvesting now will be treats for the birds who spend their winter here.
