My plan for this Sunday afternoon was to plant the
vast quantity of sunflower seeds
I have been collecting.
The last couple of years I have grown sunflowers for the
The full package of seeds never gets sown.
Plus I had a few odds and end sunflower seeds that I had bought to try, but never got around to it.
I have had this grand plan to plant all of these sunflower seeds randomly on our back acreage.
The bees would love them!
Plus wouldn't this field look pretty all a bloom with sunflowers?
I though the easiest way to plant all the seeds,
would be poking a hole in the ground,
dropping in the seed,
then adding some dirt on top.
I found a piece of rebar to do the poking.
I tried to talk the pipeliner into doing this part.
But he was busy cleaning his garage.
I started poking and planting.
Five hundred some seeds is a lot of holes to poke and plant!
The planting was coming along pretty good.
Then the skies turned to this.
The rains halted the process for the rest of the day.
the garden sure could use a good soaking.
Hopefully tomorrow I can finish my
poke and plant plan!
I will let you know when the sunflowers start sprouting!
