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.
|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…
