The Great Sunflower Project

Jun 12, 2008 -

Sunflower in bloomLast week I mentioned that this is my first year growing sunflowers.  And finally, the big one has bloomed!

I wanted to share a neat project that is going on this summer called The Great Sunflower Project. Researchers are recruiting people across the country do a “bee census” of sorts by sitting and watching their sunflowers for 30 minutes a couple times this summer, counting the bees that visit them, and sending in their bee tallies.

They are sending free seeds to anyone who signs up (you have 3 days left to sign up and get free seeds, hurry on over!).

I planted more sunflower seeds recently, and can’t wait to be able to sit in my garden and count the bees with a cool beverage in hand.
