We received photos of two giant sunflowers this week!
“My husband took this picture of me standing on a 5 gallon pail on our deck and holding on to the sunflower I planted in April,” wrote Patsy Ladermann, of Sand Lake. “It is 11feet tall and the flower is 14 inches in diameter. I planted several but this is the largest!”
Paul Fankhauser, 9, the son of Mark and Kristy Fankhauser, of Cedar Springs has also watched the sunflowers he planted grow quite large. “This one is 11 feet tall, but it’s curved over,” he explained. Mom said the flower is 12 inches by 9 inches. And they have another one that’s even bigger. The soon-to-be fourth grader is showing a bit of a green thumb—besides the sunflowers he also planted cucumbers and tomatoes in the family garden, and helps to pick them as well.
