Sunflower House Beginnings
This spring Kelli asked that I plant her a sunflower house, and so back in Mid-March I planted a 'garden room' surrounded by sunflowers and climbing morning glories. The hungry birds appreciated my efforts and decimated the sunflowers as they sprouted. Round 2. I replanted the sunflowers and covered with strips of chicken wire and so far, so good. The second planting is looking good. Now I just have to watch out for the more tenacious pests of the underground variety- the gophers!
