Sunflowers, Pay it forward goodies & Linda's Fall Is Almost Here Giveaway & Canadian Country Girl's Giveaway!!!

It's another sunny day here on the farm and to most people that means enjoying the outdoors. Here it means it's great harvesting weather! Awhile back I posted some pictures of our crops and promised to post a picture of our sunflowers when they were in bloom. Well, the time is now! Here are a few pictures of one of our sunflower fields. Sunflowers are another one of those crops that I like to call a "happy crop"! You can't help but smile when you look out into your fields of sunflowers. When I drink my morning coffee on the deck I can see one field of sunflowers peeking back at me.
It is a very lovely way to start the day!!

The other day I was coming home from the field late at night and I stopped to get the mail! Boy was I excited when I saw my package that Rondell sent me for the Pay it forward game! I could not wait to get into the house to open it! See all my cute goodies she sent me?!? I love them! Thanks Rondell, for letting me play Pay it forward and for sending me such wonderful goodies!!!

What beautiful sunflowers. I just love sunflowers, how lucky you are to have that view. I tried to grow some this summer and they just burned up....I was so sad. I guess I should have planted them in the ground and not a metal bucket. Thanks for the great pictures.

Eve said...

wow! As Crockadile Dundee would say....Now, that's Sunflowers....LOL

I reaised a few behind my garden this year and they got taller than I expected. Than along came a storm and knocked them over. I am assuming you don't have to stack all those. : )

Sister P loves sunflowers as you could see from my post for her birthday. She says sunflowers just make you want to smile.

Thanks, FarmChick, for the heads up on the giveaways. Think I'll enter them right now. Thanks for sharing with us. xxoo

Fun, I will head over and give her my referral. I LOVE sunflowers!! My grandpa always plants a row of the super tall ones with big faces. I'd love to try some smaller ones sometime along my back yard. Now I'm going to have to find some to fill a pitcher or crock with.

The sunflowers are gorgeous! We were just talking about sunflowers the other day with our son....future farmer...and he was asking what kind of a head you use to combine sunflowers. We weren't sure, maybe you could enlighten us a little on the subject.

You asked about harvest. Our wheat harvest is finished and it was AWESOME! The best we have ever had. Now onto the 3rd cutting of alfalfa and waiting on silage cutting and bean harvest.

Farm Girl Dreamer said...

OMG your sunflowers are GORGEOUS! Seeing them everyday would surely put a smile of my face. :-)
