Each year I battle the bird who love to enjoy my newly planted sunflower seeds in my large garden outside. This year I am taking the sunflower challenge. In this post, I share details about the Sunflower Challenge. This is a fun share because you get to see my home greenhouse being used!

One of the best seeds to start with children – the sunflower! You’ll see why in the days to come on my channel. The sunflower grows super fast and is always rewarding. There are so many great varieties out today it is hard to just pick one. In the video below I share what’s growing in my greenhouse – including the #sunflowerchallenge2019.
I follow a few fun allotments on YouTube. One of my favorite channels by Richard and Paul are doing a #sunflowerChallenge2019. Everyone is encouraged to post the sunflowers they are growing in 2019.

I grow a few dozen sunflower varieties each year. I lose a lot of seeds because the birds like to eat them as I plant them in the garden. This year will be a fun experience starting them indoors and planting the little staters in the garden in a few weeks. Below are some of the varieties I am growing this year.
Don’t forget the Kroger variety! This saved seed will be fun to see if it actually germinates so stay tuned.
In the photo above is the sunflower that came up on its own next to my picket fence in the big cut flower garden I grow each year.
