Bonus Sunflowers

I think of these beauties as our Gustav Klimt sunflowers. They remind me of his paintings. They show up everywhere on our farm as a result of our sunflower microgreen production. After the microgreens are cut, the dirt from the growing trays is distributed in all of our other growing beds. The tray dirt is rich with compost and is a benefit to any bed, even if it comes with a few leftover seeds. So patches of sunflowers pop up in all sorts of corners. If they aren’t in the way we just let them keep growing. Their bold presence makes me smile and the birds think it the best idea since suet cakes!
