Today I measured one plant till 103 cm! Great news, eaven though it´s worrying late on the season!:( I´ve been surfing around sunflowerblogs lately and most cultivators planted their seeds in april – maj…we planted ours the 6/june – so we are about 4-6 weeks after the proffessionals. Well I have not given up all hope …

Tuesday 3/7. Someone has eaten the uppertopp from three of my plants!:( Moysis, Dawn and I discussed the case and we persume that a rabbit has been passing by the plot and taken a bite! Hopefully it´s just an accicent and won´t happen again… I replaced the eaten plants with new from neigbours. Lucky I …
It rains today, thats very good for the plants!:)
I borrowed a car to buy a 50 meter long watertube on weels and a grass-trimmer. Now it´s raining so we wont need to water the plot for a couple of days, but still I think it´s good to have the equipment ready when we need it, cause we defenitly will!;)
I spoke to the landlord and got permission to store the watertube in the landryhouse. I also knocked on Moyses door and he was kind to keep the trimmer and the fuel can in his house.
The sprouts looks fine and I had to cull a few that was comming to close to each other.
Today Mahtab from Iran, sent me a mejl and told me that she also wanted to help out watering the plot!:) It´s very good news, since she planted almost all the seedbombs last wednesday!
One week since we planted the seedbombs and they have really exploded! I had no idea that the birdsfood – sunflower seeds- i bought this winter was so fertile!! I Had to thin out, cull very many sprouts, just leaving two or three shoots in each hole. Dawn helped me with this task.
