there are more
totalling 2015 seeds,
safely kept in plastic bags in a cool place.
From one plant, it ended up with 35 seeds and now 2015 seeds. The seeds vary so much, from real black colour to white stripes.. How interesting, coming a single plant last year....
first generation ~ 1 seed (July 2009)
second generation ~ 35 seeds (October 2009)
third generation ~ 2015 seeds. (June 2010)
Kaklongmy eldest sister had taken 100 seeds to her place.
The place she is living is at the north of Perak, with cooler temperature due to mountains
and virgin forest nearby. That will somehow recreate the original land of sunflower
which is America.
Our neighbour Noorhas shown real interest in sunflowers,
and Kakdah had given away some to her.
Kakdahhad germinated some of the seeds
with some lavishness since there are thousands available,
and a few are placed in a pot and the rest on vegetable bed.
huh, what i am going to do with so many seeds?
