The Great Sunflower Project

Hobby Farm Home magazine,, has an article in the May/June 2009 issue about the Great Sunflower Project. Gardners can sign up to plant a sunflower and survey the number of bees it attracts twice a month. The goal is to spend 30 minutes or less and to spot five bees.

The star variety for this year's effort is Lemon Queen. The Project will send you a packet of seeds to plant and provide growing tips. Go to to sign up and to learn more.

With the decline in bees, this is a great cause and assistance in the research of natural pollinators.
