Having never grown these before, I wasn't sure what to do. When is a sunflower ready to be harvested? Enter the Land Grant College! Major love is going out to the University of Illinois and University of Minnesota Extension Services. In exchange for free land for your schools, you have provided me with a valuable service: the ability to troll the internet from the safety of my house and ask the dumbest of dumb questions - Is it ready yet?

I have sunflowers drying in my house right now. I have never tried to grow sunflowers before, but seeing the cost of roasted sunflower seeds in the store, and the number of jars that my husband eats in a year, I figured it would be worth it.
