This year though... when building our new raised beds, I decided that I was going to make a whole bed of sunflowers. I have been very concerned, not sure if we were going to get any blooms because we have had a HOT and DRY summer so far. Extremely so, with temps of 100*+ days in a row.
Thankfully as I am typing this, we are in the midst of a slow, steady, beautiful rain. Yay!
The sunflower is such a great companion to the garden. I have spied soooo many more bees buzzing happily around. Which makes me even more excited at the prospect of having a bee yard soon!
