The Russian Mammoth – Organic Sunflower

We love the Russian Mammoth and the birds, bees, and the deer loves it too. The birdsDSC_0108 love all kinds of seeds and what we noticed they love the sunflower seeds even better. Here we found these pictures of our Organic Russian Mammoth Sunflowers from the 2017 season.

Standing firmly in the soil in winter almost empty of seeds, it reminded us of the reasons we had and will have sunflowers in the coming farming seasons. We planted the organic sunflowers for three purposes; one, to attract pollinators (bees), two to harvest the sunflower seeds for our own use, and three to feed the birds.

While the seeds did not get harvested this year, we most definitely had a wonderful experience enjoying watching the bees, wasps, and other pollinators visiting the big beautiful yellow and happy plants.

And when the sunflowers matured, we couldn’t stop watching the birds having the “time of their life” flying over, sitting, twitting and eating the Organic Russian Mammoth Sunflower. To your health birds! 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 At the time of purchasing the seeds we didn’t expect them to grow soooo big 🙂 We were happy however because the sunflowers attracted so much life and constant visits of bees, birds and occasionally the deer 🙂
