Great Sunflower Project

A fellow homemaker brought us each a packet of Lemon Queen sunflower seeds to our meeting last night. Did you know the Great Sunflower Project is looking for people who are willing to grow the annual sunflower "Lemon Queen"? Once the sunflower is blooming, time how long it takes for five bees total --honey or bumble--to stop by for a visit. The data will be used by scientists to monitor bee populations in different areas of the country. You can find out more information about the project and sign up online at So pick up a packet of seeds today!
