Sunflower Tales.

Did you miss us? I’ve missed being here and so with no further ado let’s get on with the blogging…

We are having a sunflower growing competition! A couple of weeks ago I planted up a load of Giant Yellow sunflower seeds and numbered the pots.

With the weather forecast, finally, promising warm weather we decided to have a BBQ at the plot and so it seemed like the right time to draw lots and allocate seedlings. image

So so after working hard on the plot and finally managing to persuade the charcoal to light ( having a plumber husband that owns a blow torch is ever so handy sometimes!) we had a lucky dip. Dave got plant No. 9 and it was love at first sight!!!

We ran out of time to actually plant our seedlings this evening so that will a top priority job this week. Then the competition will really begin in earnest. Neil, never one to shy away from being competitive, has already been googling ‘how to grow the tallest sunflower’ !!!
