Sunflower Plants 2015

Usually I plant tomatoes, sometimes zucchini and cucumbers.  This year just after my back surgery for the second time and spending the month of March in the hospital with acute respiratory failure, meningitis, anemia, etc.; I was just not up to gardening.  Hopefully next year will be different.


My wife Lynette planted sunflower seeds to fill up the empty space in the vegetable garden.  At first the birds would eat the seeds as soon as she planted them.  So she used a wire screen to cover the ground until the plants sprouted.


I'll write a post when they bloom.

  1. Great choice, the sunflower. The early settlers planted sunflowers to ward off malaria and other illnesses.
    The sunflower also draws near the protective lions and fire dragons for happiness, HEALING and well-being!
    I will look forward to photos after they have bloomed~

  2. Just recently, I heard on the radio that sunflowers naturally detoxify soil.

  3. We tried to plant one a few years ago, I gave it to Daisy to keep at her old house. She forgot to water it...

  4. You should have a beautiful sunflower yeild there. And the seeds can be roasted as a snack that will be so good for you.
