Sunflowers

We planted a few sunflowers to attract some bees to the general area of our garden but we never expected to see such phenomenal growth.

The sunflowers grew to over 8 feet tall and several inches in diameter.

We only got 2 flower heads but as they turned brown and started dying we cut the heads and put them in cheesecloth in the garage.  In a few weeks we hope to have sunflower seeds.  Now sure exactly how long this will take but we are eagerly awaiting our first seeds.
