My plan is to grow sunflowers and a pumpkin patch this year. Today we completed Phase 1: Sunflower Row. Jeremy and I cleared a 5' x 1.5' plot on the south side of our house, dug a small trench along the center, and planted (organic!) sunflower seeds with 1' gaps between them. We may clear a larger area later, but for now, we should have 4 sunflowers germinating in two to three weeks and blooming by September.
Next weekend we begin begin Phase Two: Pumpkin Patch.
