Both Buyers J & H came back to share their beautiful sunflower planted a few weeks back. Buyer J & H - Thanks for coming back to share the pic with us ! 😊 Sunflower 🌻 is one of the easiest-to-grow plant and is a very nutritional food. The seeds make very healthy tidbits and can be sprinkle over salad too ! Buyer J came back to share the large sunflower seed she germinated in peat pellet on 18 July 2016. On the second week, the roots already poking out of the peat pellet. It has tremendous growth (we called it "Ferrari" sunflower) and Buyer J already transferred into a pot. Now, Buyer J called it a "PLANT" (Yes ! You go girl !) Thanks for coming back to share and encourage us ! Sometimes, we may find it challenging to germinate a seed, given that our places may not be built to most ideal layouts for planting, we can improvise our methods of growth. Sometimes, plants died in our hands - we need to ponder and do some research over it - is it our medium of growth that is not robust ? Is it our method of watering is not the best ? Is it lack of sunlight or too much of it ? Sometimes, unwelcome guests were feasting on our labour of love and hardwork before we can enjoy them ourselves. Can we work a way to prevent them or send them packing ? There are many many of these questions to go through. However, once we got these factors work out, the rest is a breeze. My take is understanding your seeds/plants like you understand your own kids. Everybody's situations are different. Bottom line is don't give up ! The rewards are plentiful, especially in terms of healthy living, so please be patience and enjoy the processes. BTW, the sunflower plants are not just for the flower, the seeds can be eaten (very healthy snack or get ready as tidbits for next CNY), also the seeds can be milled into sunflower oil. In fact, I understand the sunflower seedlings can be eaten like alfalfa. There is many useful things u can do with sunflower, so it is not a non-edible. Gardening is a good bonding activity (especially within family members) and create a common topic among participants. If these pictures inspire you, you may want to consider picking up gardening and join the "Grow Your Own Food Garden Movements". Thanks for viewing !
