We thought it would be fun to plant sunflowers this summer, for the first time. Jada and I carefully planted each “Big Mama” seed into the ground, and anxiously watched them grow. I couldn’t wait to pick the seeds and snack on them, or toss them to the chickens to enjoy over the winter.
But I must have missed something somewhere.
My sunflowers grew no seeds.
I kept waiting, thinking maybe they needed to be pollinated or something. But they eventually wilted and died, producing nothing but small flower heads.
What’s up with that? I thought all sunflowers made seeds. Anyone know what might have happened? Seedless sunflowers are no fun!
