Sunflowers

This year we planted sunflowers on our little farm. I have always loved the bright happy yellow flowers 🌻 that turn with the sun.

Beside their cherry presence in the garden they provided a nutritious snack for our chickens and goats.

This week we harvested some of our bigger flower heads.

Black Oil Sunflower seeds contain 28% fat, 25% fiber and 15% protein. Making these an excellent winter feed.

These are Black Oil and Grey Striped mixed together

Our Sunflowers have also attached a lot of bees to our garden. We hope to put in a bee hive next year so we definitely we will be planting a lot more Sunflowers next year!
