[quote name="Marsha Cassada" post="1622759" timestamp="1502315717"]Sorry. The giant sunflower is tin. It goes in the garden every year. I helped judge at a Fair last week and there were two giant sunflowers entered. Also saw a field of sunflowers near us for the first time. I wonder how they are harvested?[/quote
Bummer about that sunflower lol, it looks like the real deal in the picture. I wonder if the field by you is grown for seeds or for flowers? Either way, what a happy crop to grow.
Grown for seeds. Farmers are trying all sorts of crops because the price of wheat is so low. Canola and sesame are two fairly new crops around here.
