Sunflower harvesting redux....

Today, we got out in the yard and got a few things done.... Here is my beautiful wife sculpting the jasmine bush that tried to cover the front corner of the house... Meanwhile, I went out and brought our garden down to size.... Doesn't it look pathetic???? Here is my haul from the chopping..... I wanted to harvest seed, but there are hundreds of these little guys competing with me for rights to these plants... But I got a few seeds.... I left a bunch all over the driveway for the birds and squirrels... And here is my haul..... So I will be trying once again to salt these.... Last time they molded before I got the chance to do it (besides, I harvested them too soon). Hopefully this time turns out a bit better.... I'll let you know.

I love sunflower seeds.

Hey Guppyman I just wanted to congratulate you on the win against me in the BOTB. Maybe next time.

By the way, I really like your blog. The Mr T video was awesome.

Your blog looks great! I forgot to water our flowers on our deck yesterday, and then they shut off our water last night because of a water main break. I think they are gasping for air today.

Come by and see my new movie if you get a chance!
