sunflowers

About a month and a half ago I planted two sets of sunflower seeds: tall, pollenless flowers; and the gigantic kind with edible seeds. They have proven to be so hardy. Similar to my pumpkin plant, I planted all the seedlings in a rocky, clay spot next to the fence. I believe they will probably withstand anything this summer. The sunflowers are already two feet tall.

A couple weeks ago I planted the rest of the sunflower seeds. We had flash flooding for two weeks straight in Washington and those little guys kept growing. Unfortunately my onion and green bean seeds didn’t withstand the rain. Next time, I will bring the starter seeds inside to the windowsill or invest in a small greenhouse.
