Tending The Sunflowers

The mammoth sunflowers I planted in May have really taken off! We think the one nearest to the house has hit nine feet. And, while that one seems to be done growing, the other nine continue to ascend. I don’t know if they’ll reach the fabled twelve feet advertised on the seed packet, but they’re coming a lot closer than any sunflowers I’ve ever grown before. It’ll be fun to see where they finally top out.
