Sunflowers growing in our front yard

Gardening is such a fun way to teach about plants and when seeds that are planted do well they are a great reward too.

A few months ago I was weeding and planting some seeds in the front and back yard (mostly vegetable seeds). Baby K was helping me and I when we were in the front I gave her some Giant Sunflower seeds to plant herself. She planted them too close together but obviously did it deep enough.

There are about 5-7 plants coming up. Mostly small, it is December, ya know, but one of them is growing about the rest and right now it is taller then Baby K.

I think these are suppose to get 10-12 feet tall so we will see! Right now she is amazed and very proud of herself too!
