Remember the potato in the worm bin? Today, I uncovered the latest batch of compost only to find these huge seedlings cheerily hoping for a bit of sun. They’re so big, they’ve got to be sunflowers. At least I hope so.
I hope this is one of the native sunflowers that I sowed for the Great Sunflower Project.
And I really hope this a black oil sunflower sprouting from some birdseed gone astray. It’s a monster!
If they get out of hand, I’m going to need this little guy to grow up and eat them.
