If you are interested in planting something new this year and would also like to help the environment then consider joining The Great Sunflower Project.
I have never tried to plan sunflowers before so I am kind of excited to try them out this year and see what happens. I had a friend that grew them last year and they looked awesome and the seeds he got were fabulous.
Not only is this a great way to try out your gardening hand but it also helps the environment. Did you know that there is a bee shortage in the US? That's right, there are too few bees. You may see bees as a pest that you are allergic to but they are actually very beneficial to the environment. They are the ones that pollenate flowers that produce fruits. They are also the source of honey. Without bees, we would not be able to enjoy honey, the most natural organic sweetener!
So, what do you say? You in or you out? Leave a comment and let me know if you will join the Project.
