At 41 days. The sunflowers in the bottom gardens are growing well despite the brown. They have been like that for a while. I'm a little apprehensive about trimming them since they are flowing just fine.
The last of the photos I'll post. I probably won't plant this variety again since the others are so nice and stay shorter. These get crooked at the top of the stalk because I have to tie them so they lean. Still they grew well.
I have some sunflower seeds coming next week. I am planting them in the far back corner of my back yard. We recently put a fence around the back for Piper and it looks huge and bare. So in that far corner will be sunflowers. Not only will it look nice but will also provide some further privacy from that nosy neighbor.
Plus I hear they will come back year after year. Do not know if that is true or not but time will tell.
