The Sunflower Story
« on: April 11, 2018, 08:15:55 AM »
Just thinking this morning about things, and I remembered a fellow who once asked me about cover crops. I've grow a few different types and he wanted to know what were the ones I liked the most.
I told him of clovers and their benefits, sunn hemp the advantage and draw backs of it, but the one he liked the most was the sunflower story..

I planted a whole field full of sunflowers and when they bloomed it was a sight to see.  It was close to the road and passer bys would slow down to look..  One day a car pulled up in the drive and a gal stopped to ask if they could walk out in the field among the flowers, I figured they wanted to pick a few and gave them my blessing to do so, then went on with my business..
I noticed as the car turned around the tag was from California, unusual to see a car that far away this far in the country.. I didn't think much about it at the time..

About a week later a cousin of mine stopped to visit and asked who were the gals out in the field he saw last week.  I told him just a couple of gals who wanted to pick a few sunflowers..
He said did you notice them running around in the field topless?  Taking pictures?  Well no I hadn't.. He said he wasn't the only one to notice and the neighborhood was talking about it.. and curious who they were..

Well to make a long story short the fellow decided to plant sunflowers..
If I'm not having problems,, I'm not doing it right..
