We grew a number of giant sunflowers this summer. Once the heads died we cut them down and dried them. As I type my husband is finishing up processing the heads in order to retrieve the seeds. He is just about done and is vacuuming up the patio floor covering to clean up the remains of the sunflowers. We ended up with about half a bucket of sunflowers seeds. I will be roasting these and enjoying them this winter. It is nice to have something edible from the beautiful flowers we enjoyed this summer.
