Two weeks ago I decided I wanted sunflowers for a portion of the garden that was now empty. So, we visited Thies Farm, one of the local markets we’ve enjoyed for several years, and sure enough they had pots of 4 for just $5. So, we bought two of them. They are about 2 feet tall now.
We’ve tried growing them from seeds in years past but never had much luck. They’d come up and bloom, but they never got very tall. I’m hoping these take off and are sky high by October. Right now they are a little droopy because it’s been triple degree weather, but we got rain this past Sunday so maybe they will start looking up.
