I like to collect some seeds from my native wildflower garden each year....This is my third year and this year is already off to a good start I've been collecting sunflower heads and purple coneflower heads every 3-5 days since mid - june and I've got a nice sized amount collected. The flowering season for both plants is almost done but I've got more plants to start flowering at the end of summer. I'll will be posting those, too!! So, to start, here's what a sunflower and purple coneflower look like Basically these flowers heads have been sitting in bowls in my living room drying out since I cut them Once they are fully dry, I can remove the seeds manually with my hands. The sunflowers will be easy and the purple coneflowers are more work here's what I've collected Here's some sunflower heads that are almost fully dry!! here's some purple coneflower heads I'll have some updates when I remove seeds and/or collect more flower heads from my Garden! ~ P E A C E ~ and thanks for looking!!!
