Unquestionably, our finest crop this year has been sunflowers.  Unfortunately, we don’t really eat them.  Squirrels, ducks, goldfinches and other critters beat us to the savory bits.  But if there’s one creature this summer that thrived on our giant helianthus it would have to be the bee.  Now if we could only figure out where they keep the honey…aw, let ’em have it!


Make honey while the sun shines.


Almost quittin’ time.


Hey, you missed a spot!
