This morning! 8/30/2014

 It's amazing the difference a day and a little rain makes.  This was the field earlier this morning.
The next few days will get better and better. 

Just a reminder:
-We are a row crop farm and just happen to plant a few sunflowers. 
-We have neither business hours, nor a store front.
-We do have a field. The closest address is 14754 243rd street, Lawrence, KS 66044.
-The field is NOT at our house. It happens to be around a neighbor's house this year, so PLEASE be respectful and stay out of his yard. We like our neighbor and want him to continue to like us.
-We allow people to stop at the field and take pictures.
-We allow people to cut sunflowers if they wish. We have two "donation" boxes located at the field.
-We do allow professional photographers access to the field. Remember that if you're making $ off of our field, a donation in the box is a lovely and much appreciated gesture.
-If you haul it in, haul it back out. (Last year we almost combined a metal chair that was left in the field. Combines are not cheap, and being without one because of repairs during peak season is very costly.)
-The field will (most likely) be hot and buggy. Be prepared for both.
-There are no restrooms!!!!!!!!!!!! (It's a field.)
Okay! Now that I think I have the rules for engagement covered, I'll just say ENJOY! (And please be careful.) A field of sunflowers truly is a thing of beauty...for about two weeks.

  1. I have not yet visited your beautiful sunflower field, but I wanted to thank you in advance for being so gracious with your land. It is rare nowadays to find people (such as yourselves) who will share their property and the rare beauty of the flowers with complete strangers, asking very little in return. I know not everyone is as respectful as you would like, but I would hope that the majority of your visitors appreciate you and all your hard work. I'm sure the flowers bring many people much joy! Thank you!!!
