I have sometimes shared the story of my pandemic garden this season. I planted 6 tomato plants which have become a high producing hedge. And, there are the squash plants doing what squash plants do, as if they were on steroids!
However, it is the tale of a crazy Sunflower which has blown my socks off! I planted a half dozen Sunflower seeds, but only one sprouted. It grew and grew, and for the longest time gave no sign of providing a blossom. I was amazed when it hit six feet, and then nine, without any bloom. Finally, when it reached eleven feet, it began to form a bud. But, that thing had the audacity after all my watering and care, to turn it's beautiful head toward my neighbor's house, instead of mine!
I want to thank Jack, my nextdoor neighbor for providing me access to his side yard to use a ladder, so my camera could capture this closeup.
The second photo provides a view of the Sunflower from my yard, with tomato hedge on the left, and squash beneath. And, the third picture was taken on Jack's side of the fence (with Jack) to provide a little scale to how outrageously huge that thing is!
