So, many of you know that we plant a garden every summer...well if you didn't, we do...nothing big, just herbs, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, that's about it. Ben has done gardens most of his life, but for me...I'm a first timer. I'm starting to get a little more comfortable with it, so this year I decided to go wild and try growing Sun Flowers behind the garden. I read a few things online, and started off by germinating them before planting. This way I could plant just the strong one, those that didn't sprout, I threw out. So, here's a few pictures of my germination...standby for more pictures as they grow.
Here are the two packets I picked up for cheap at our local garden center.
To get them to germinate, I placed the seeds in between wet paper towels and kept them damp until they began to sprout...just a few days was all it took.
Here's what I ended up with before I planted...it was pretty cool.
I did all this at the end of June, so I'll post a few pictures of how they look since I planted next time I post!
