Shannon is 5'7" and just LOOK at the sunflowers we planted beside her! They are between 10 and 12 feet tall! What started as seeds we planted in large plastic bucket containers behind our garden has turned into such amazingly tall beasts! That wasn't planned at all, they were basically there to be winter bird feeders and look cute while giving something for the squash to climb up, not these humungous towers! But I had to share how tall they were and they haven't even BLOOMED YET!
P.S. That is a plastic garden hawk behind her. No new hawks until the fall!
