As we approach the Fall weather, we can still find rays of hope stemming from Cascadia’s Cornucopia. Tyson Kemper is back with us today to talk about the tall, bright plant known as helianthus, or more commonly to us as the sunflower. Did you know that sunflowers offer more than a pretty view? They are a nutritious snack, as well! Learn how to harvest the bounty of seeds that each individual sunflower contains.
Green tip: when the center of the sunflower (the seeds) turns black, and the petals begin to look disheveled, you know the seeds are ready. Pick a flower and enjoy!
