September Sunflowers

I know it’s now October, but our sunflowers finally started flowering in September. In fact, they still have flowers now. We planted them as part of 30 Days Wild back in June, which seems like ages ago now. Mine won for the tallest and for flowering first.

   
 
The herbs are growing huge too – I’ve used the basil and oregano in meals but not yet the thyme and chives.

  
  
The basil at the back is growing HUGE, and the one at the front-right has been eaten a bit by moth caterpillars. I’m surprised at how well the herbs have grown and I definitely would grow them from seed again; it’s so rewarding seeing them grow and getting to eat them.
