These Sunflower Seeds Are

by Phillip

I planted these on May 8th and they're getting taller everyday. As far as planting, I dug a hole 6 inches deep, broke up the soil, added organic soil and mixed it with about 5 inches of soil. I then put 4-5 seeds in the hole and covered with the remaining 1 inch of soil. I planted approx 7 holes. I water every other day. I wasn't sure this would work since I have horrible red clay soil. So far 6 of the 7 holes have sprouted plants. I'm excited to see how they continue to progress!! And FYI, I suck at all things gardening.
