This summer it's not only the produce that has been abundant. I've been buying a bouquet of sunflowers each week. You get a half dozen sunflowers with three millet stalks for $2.50 at the Mennonite farm stand just up the hill from here. You can't beat price and they last a week. I am keeping them on the tray on the deck where I ripen my tomatoes and fruit, next to the all-important rain gauge and thermometer.
The sunflowers make me happy every time I see them sitting out there in the sun.
