Gardening for the birds… literally.

Here it is. A bowl of fresh sunflower seeds harvested from our garden.

We’ve planted them, nurtured them, and protected them from the deer. Well mostly. There was one day when I left the gate open only to catch on of them munching on a sunflower plant. Thankfully all she got was a taste. If you think that we’ll be eating seeds in front of the TV for the next month, you’d be wrong. We’ll put these in the bird feeder. This will supplement the 50 to 100 lbs of seed we feed to the birds every year.

We grew the flowers more for their beauty than for the seeds. Sunflowers always look happy.
