This is the second year that Miss E grew her own sunflowers. Take a look at last year's flower garden.
I designate a small garden patch by creating a stone border and filing it with soil. Here in Central TX, our rocky soil is hard for little hands to dig, and that's why I add a top layer of rich, loose soil. In areas with good soil, you can plant directly into dirt.
Miss E is given the responsibility of planting the seeds and tending to her garden. She diligently watered her garden for over two months.
