I want one.
Or a whole package of seeds planted in my flowerbeds.
And yet, not one has grown. Years of planting the seeds and not seeing anything sprout has led me to believe that I will never grow sunflowers. At first I thought it was me. I tend to just tear open a seed packet and sprinkle them over dirt, give it a slight raking over, and soak with water. Not exactly according to most directions.
So this year I carefully read the packets. I planted everything by the rules. My veggie garden is going gangbusters, so I obviously can plant seeds that grow.
Just not sunflowers.
Now I have moved beyond tossing out seeds, beyond following instructions and have started researching why my seeds aren't sprouting....
Ah Ha! I thought the squirrels in our yard look particularly fat and sassy!
