Well with all the rain and sunshine we have been getting since the last update, the sunflowers have grown quite a bit. The tallest plant which was 2 feet 8 inches in my last update is now 5 feet 2 inches. Including the pot, it’s almost as tall as I am now. One of the plants next to the mailbox is now as tall as the mailbox (About 4 feet). I’ve noticed that even though there are no flowers yet, the plants seem to attract ants and other bugs. As far as I can tell they don’t seem to be hurting the plants so I let them be. I wish I had a better camera so I could take some good closeups of the critters but I’m not done with my research yet. I will tell you one thing for sure, they drink a lot of water. I was watering them every other day until I can home and found them very droopy. They perked up quickly though after a good drink so now I water them everyday.
