One Fine(Cooler, Less Humid) Day!
The Mammoth and Moonwalking Sunflowers have almost all bloomed, and are now heading towards becoming a seed festival for the Squirrels....meanwhile the "Mexicans", and Evening Shade variety continue to pop out...and finally a couple of "Teddy Bear" Sunflowers made their appearance, completing the circle of all types I planted back in May. As I have mentioned I am pretty educated in Biology and Environmental Health, but hardly a Horticulturist...I do however enjoy growing the various Sunflower varieties, and plan on increasing the types and numbers next Spring. Sunflowers, for the most part, are useful...you can cure and eat the big seeds, use them for stock, or feed them to the critters throughout the winter months.
