Little Sunflowers

Seed starting little sunflowers!

Our foster kiddo randomly brought home a sunflower seed packet a few weeks ago.

The funny thing about the seeds were that they were very vague.  The only information I could find on the packet is that they are sunflowers!  There's no variety listed at all!  I have no idea if they're going to be small or large sunflowers or even what color they will be!

Because we're still not sure where we'll be planting them, I decided to seed start them first.  This was my first time seed starting sunflowers & it went great!  Out of the 8 seeds I planted, 6 of them became seedlings!

I always find it weird that given the same conditions, seeds take off differently.  While we have some larger seedlings, there are still a couple small ones in there.

I liked seed starting sunflowers so much that I ended up started an entire flat of them with more sunflower seeds!

We're in the middle of building a greenhouse that will be ready for seed starting next year.  I've had a lot of fun seed starting different things in our basement this year.  I can't wait to be able to start more seed varieties on a much bigger scale next year.

I also hope to get our foster kiddo into gardening as well.  I had plans for him to have his own little garden but time got away from us this year.  I guess these sunflowers will have to be his introduction into gardening!
