Everything but Sunflowers

Although our vegetables are growing well, the Sunflowers we planted have failed. None of them have come up.

Sunflowers Planted

My dad has challenged all his kids and grand-kids to grow the tallest sunflower. We had started some off inside, but they didn’t make it. So, this afternoon, we planted some in the back garden.

Hopefully, we haven’t left it so late that they won’t have a chance to grow!

We also planted lots of other things: spring onions, carrots, peas, tomatoes, peppers, chillies and cucumbers. We weren’t very successful with spring onions or peppers last year, so it would be great if they grow this year.
