The sunflowers are now thigh high. They have had a good amount of rain (especially for August) and are growing like weeds. As a matter of fact, there are plenty of weeds growing in the field, too.
This is Farmer Ted out standing in his field. Unfortunately for him, he made a face when I took the photo, so that is the one that gets posted. (He said he couldn't believe that I would post this particular photo...but really? He should know me better by now.)
Still projecting a couple more weeks until they bloom.
