This endless summer has really helped us out with starting seeds at Sullivan’s garden. Unfortunately, the neighborhood chickens have been flying into the garden and eating our seedlings — or at least ruffling up the roots with their feathers — but we are determined to keep planting, hoping that the chickens will soon be too fat to hop the fence and then our radishes and beans will grow fat for us to eat.
In the meantime, the sunflowers are still growing strong. The kids love to see just how tall the flower is compared to everyone else. Next month, when the flower dies, we’ll cut it down and count how many seeds are on the inside!
