When I was a kid, I used to love eating sunflower seeds.
My brother ate them because some baseball players ate them instead of chewing tobacco, which is nasty stuff!
I checked a website of a popular Sunflower Seeds company in America, David’s, and I found a few new flavors! They have Original, –of course, Ranch, Bar-B-Q, Nacho Cheese, Dill Pickle (hmm sounds good!), and a very unique one: ChiliLime.
Recently, one of my student’s daughters gave me some seeds. But these seeds were not for eating.
I planted them. I thought it would take a long time to grow, but they grew already! About one week, I think.
I was worried about crows and other birds eating my little sprouts so I put together this scarecrow. Is it scary?
How’s your garden coming along? Please leave a comment.
