Sunflower seeds

The sunflowers that John Paul and Daniel planted have finally grown and started producing seeds! I cut this flower head off yesterday (much to the kid's amazement!)

I was going to just let the seed head dry naturally in the sunshine on our little patio table, but then I spied the squirrel (who daily raids the bird feeders) eying it like a brunch buffet!

It really is amazing to look at!
John Paul: "Are these going to taste like the seeds we get at the ballfield?"
Me: "Nope, they'll taste better!"
John Paul: "Are you going to put salt on them?"
Me: "Probably not."
John Paul: "Hmmm...I won't eat them unless they have lots of salt. I'll stick with popcorn!"
