To say I've had fun in my garden during this pandemic would be an understatement. Several days ago, I wrote a post titled, "A Pandemic Sunflower," about my first experience growing one of those joyful looking blossoms. While only one seed planted, sprouted and prospered, it did indeed thrive to a height of eleven feet.
Since writing the last post, the stalk had began to bow and bend under weight of the enormous bloom. Bugs and birds had decimated the leaves, and they were no longer pleasant to look at.
This evening, I decided to go ahead and snip the flower off. I have placed it next to one of my dinner plates so you can see comparison in size. It weighed in at 4.8 pounds!
