I know my love of all things Sunflower isn’t unique. These flowers capture the hearts and imagination of so many and feature in many designs and art works.

First hint of that flower
The beginning.

Today I wanted to share with you my own personal ‘wander through the sunflower magic’; which has been a major JOYful role in Our Small Urban Farm during its growth.

Slowly waking up

Our awesome permaculture teacher Geoff Lawton  promoted that we establish productive reasons for growing food or keeping stock on a farm and right then I decided that THE JOY FACTOR was one of my top contenders on that list.

Unwrapping the happy.

Multiheaded Wonder
The result of a stray seed falling from my bag of Chook (hen) Food. It was amazing watching the big, multi-headed story unfold. ps The seed from this wasn’t viable at all.

Sharing with cheeky friends (1)

We get to share with cheeky friends as well. They don’t seem to eat much and really do offer us a lot of fun.

Fabulously Full Seed Head

But not only do the sunflowers offer that JOY factor (in spades) they also feed our chooks. We make them work for it though, as we put the entire dry flower head into the run for them to attack, which they do.
