Sunflower plantings!

In the field…

Excited to get into the field and start planting sunflowers!  This post will be light on text and heavy on pics (but as they say, a picture is worth a 1,000 words…).  I have 6 – 100 foot rows this year and will be doing a bit of experimenting with planting seeds vs. sets.

I have a new place to grow and had to start brand new rows.  Henry (hubby) and I rented a sod cutter to make the rows (thank you, Henry!).

A little friend came to help us with the sod cutter…

 I flipped the sod over to be able to plant the sunflower seeds in the soil.

2 rows…
All 6 rows!

I have NEVER put together an irrigation system before!  It went smoothly and is working well.

First row planted with seeds…
Transplants ready to go into the field…
Second row planted with transplants.

Third row planted with seeds.  Let’s see how this does!  I will have more transplants to put in next week!

The boys and I are headed to the forest to forage for morels today…
