We got excited last night when I spotted the first blooms in the sunflower field. On closer inspection, the blooms were actually from other varieties of sunflowers that somehow got into the seeds that we planted. They are all in the rows so not volunteers as I initially thought. They’re also taller and have multiple flowers per plant unlike the oil sunflower variety we planted which have only one flower per plant. They should be blooming very shortly though as we had a good rain yesterday and the buds look about ready to open… can hardly wait!
