Sunflowers progress

The first seed head to blossom is already losing its little flowers!

I think I should be able to harvest it and set it to dry at this point; at least that’s what I’ve learned from my research. But would the seeds normally be this white?

I think I’ll leave it a bit longer. So far, no birds seem to be going for it.

Pollinators aren’t’ the only ones interested in the budding sunflowers.

The leaves make great shelter for resting dragonflies!

Those leaves have a lot of holes in them. I can’t see what’s causing them, though. They still seem to be doing all right, so I’m not concerned at this point.

  1. Might be those flea beetles. The stuff I read looking them up said they prefer broad leaf veggies. MIGHT be them, and they just don’t like it as much as the other stuff they were massacring in your garden. Just a guess.
