Sunflower

09/15/08

There is nothing more beautiful than my crop of sunflowers. Some are over 12 feet high.

Samoans like the looks of them and when they try to smell them, yellow pollen sticks to their noses. When given the seeds to eat, they chew the whole seed and spit it out. I think I may have to do a little education before sunflowers become a viable crop.

Sunflowers make me smile. They're just so doofy looking--especially when you see one sprouting up from a crack alongside a highway. I'm happy to hear you're growing them for the Samoans. I hope they enjoy them. And teach them how to properly eat the seeds--it's well worth it! Ann Braden
