Sun Flowers?

We love to see the sun flowers that we grow in our garden and the garden birds love the seeds. A good deal for both parties I think.
We've had these dead heads in the airing cupboard for a week.

And tonight, we've sat around the garden fire with a glass or red and scraped the seeds from the heads. I think we'll probably put them back into the airing cupboard for a while longer.


Must plant some and hope for better success this year

If you remember, we planted some of the 'Mammoth' variety but we also did pretty well with seeds straight from the bird food we get.
