Well… At least it\’s not blogger…..

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.

  10. 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!
