Well you guys, August 1st! Can you even believe how time is FLYING???
well FOR ME I feel it.. boohoo

Anyways, My Sunflower Garden is still very tall, yet it is very dry now. I do not water my garden any more after this time now. Since many seeds are now ready and if some fall and im still watering you know what will happen. lol

its funny to watch since they usually come out deformed...? ODD...lol

OK My interest is peaked! When do you plant them by seed? Do you keep a patch growing and they just reseed? What is the best soil to plant them in?

I think I want to try growing them next year!
:)

I am loving these pictures!

Sunflowers are so beautiful. I read that in Kansas in August there is a Sunflower festival with 3,000 acres of sunflowers to see.
