Now that my harvest is over I don’t mind sharing the left overs with the squirrels that live in one of our big trees.  The sunflowers are a big hit with them this year.  It was the first year I planted them and I had several reach over ten feet tall with quit a few flowers.

Twice this afternoon when I went to let the dogs out a squirrel was on the fence of the vegetable garden with a flower in his or her mouth.  They make a hasty retreat as soon as the back door opens, but not with out their prize.  I know the squirrels will be eating good well into the winter.

I’m also thinking I’ll have about a million sunflowers next year all over the yard.  Where ever you look there are sunflower seeds all over the ground.
