Dear Gardeners & Sunflower lovers…
We had an absolutely bumper crop of over 10,000 bright yellow sunflowers. A Big Success by any measure. The yellow Finches and Doves have eaten almost every seed. We did harvest some so we can create the garden again next year. I hope you are ‘up’ for it again.
This Saturday morning we are going to pull out the plants and send them to a composter. We will begin at 9… Come pull a few plants, and enjoy a Hot Spiced Cider or Coffee with friends. Bring your gloves and a neighbor –
Many thanks from the “Delmar Sunflower Team”. Come have fun in the dirt with us… 51xx Delmar…
