It may be a bad summer for produce, but boy oh boy, is it a good summer for sunflowers. I was lucky to pick up the last bunch at the local farm stand and now their cheery sturdy presence graces the kitchen. I can’t get enough of them.
Next summer is going to be the ‘year’ of landscaping and these beauties are officially on the list with some new shrubs and an expanded lavender section to include multiple varieties.
With enough planning and a little help from mom, maybe there is hope for my not so ripe green thumb.
