Remember when everything in our garden was tiny and just barely starting to grow? Well look at it now! Whew, those sunflowers have been growing like crazy. At one point it felt like they were growing 6 inches a day. The flower heads are just beginning to form so I think they will stop getting higher now.
They have served their purpose though. Although the green beans we planted did not grow very well (out of the 16 we planted, only 3 grew). The ones that did have laced themselves around the sunflowers and climbed on up. Can you see this one wrapping itself around? That's like 5 feet high too. Their good little climbers.
Oh yeah, remember those tiny herbs just beginning to sprout? Well look at them now:I've been trying to use the basil as much as I can, but I guess not enough because this one is going to flower.
