Our 10 foot tall Sunflowers, greeting the morning sun:
Tom planted corn this past Spring. We are the only house in S. Cal with a corn field in the backyard:
And we have carrots too:
And a wall of new grape leaves:
And some ripe grapes:
Our orange tree:
Tonight we decided to pluck a giant sunflower and make some home made sunflower seeds: (fyi, that's Tom plucking out the seeds, I don't have man hands!)
They are now soaking in a salt bath overnight so tomorrow morning I'll bake them and we'll have a fresh batch of seeds to enjoy!
I hope we can grow Sunflowers in Seattle but for some reason I'm thinking that may not happen.
I'm getting sad again...
