For the birds

In late Summer I cut the Sunflower heads,

and dry them in the greenhouse.

I place them throughout the garden for the birds to feed on.

Inevitably some of the seeds drop to the ground and next Spring a fresh crop of Sunflowers grow in the garden.

    1. I also planted one entire row of Sunflower varieties along the North fence of the garden–these did horribly, same reason, just to dry. I couldn’t put down enough water for everything!

  1. The birdies will love the seeds. Sunflowers are one of my fav flowers. I don’t have enough sun to grow them any longer, but did get some beautiful ones from my crop share Farm. They were some deep burgundy ones I was totally into. As cut flowers they last in the house a long time.
