Well, our Sunflower House never quite made it to fruition. I’m afraid the morning glories and moonflowers took over.
Here’s a picture from last month:
This is one of the moonflowers. They are SO pretty!
Anyway, back to the sunflowers. We did have a couple get large enough to seed. Here’s a closeup!
We roasted them, which was super easy… and quite yummy! First, soak them overnight in saltwater. (I used 2 cups of water and 1/4 cup salt). In the morning, lay them out to dry on a paper towel. Spread them on a cookie sheet and roast them for 30-40 minutes at 300 degrees, stirring occasionally. When they’re done, let them cool, and store in an airtight container. Easy Peasy!
