Remember Dallin’s huge sunflowers? Well, the sunflower seeds finally matured and so we decided to harvest them.
I still can’t get over how big these things got.
They really were enormous and very very heavy!
This huge pile of seeds was from only FOUR sunflowers. Crazy!
After harvesting them, I decided to try soaking them in salt and then roasting them in the oven. They came out ok, but not as good as the ones you buy at the store. I think I should have used DOUBLE the amount of salt that the recipe I had called for. But, it was a good learning experience and now I know for next year!
