Laura and her 12 foot tall Arikara sunflowers. I almost fell off my chair when she sent me this picture, truly!
Luckily, they all just fit in this mason jar.
.I save the seeds every year of course,
(and currently have them for sale on my Etsy site if you're interested).
As for the seed heads, I'm currently making wreaths with them.
A lovely lady who purchased some of these from me this past spring was kind enough to send me a picture of her harvest. They grew 12 feet tall for her. I'm so pleased!
She (Laura), gave me permission to share a picture she took of them, here on my blog.
Thanks Laura! You have one hell of a green thumb! : )
Isn't Nature grand?
Thanks for visiting!
Happy Heirloom gardening!
(Because, really, Monsanto's poisonous crap will never grow as well as an heirloom will.)
