We had let our sunflowers dry out for a few weeks and today it was time to remove the seeds from the plants. There were excited squeals as we gathered together and scraped and flicked the seeds out of the flower heads. Seeds flew everywhere! We ended up with a lot of seeds. We are going to prepare some of them to eat and put away some of them to plant next spring!
