We tried a sunflower house a couple of years ago and it didn't do to well....but last year we had a few big heads and we saved the seeds. So we tried again. So far it is doing really well, I am not sure if they will get to the height required to tie to tops into a roof....but it is a house already. With marigolds, cosmos, zinnias and morning glories growing all around. It even has inhabitants:
I am very thankful for the the rains we have been getting this year- I don't think it has rained like this in nearly 5 years, and everything is green to show for it. And it is even better that it is raining summer style...popping up in the afternoon, pour for a 10-30 minutes and then the sun is back.
From our garden this afternoon,
