Sunflower Competition - day 94
We have flowers! This is number two. 1: 221cm 2: 250cm 3: 249cm 5: 194cm I’m measuring from the ground to the highest point on the stem, where it bends over for the flower head. Two and three are very close, but three’s head is not fully formed yet so that may change.

1: 10cm 2: 13cm 3: 9cm 4: n/a 5: 10.5cm 4 and 5 were eaten. Number 2 had a spare which was donated to 5. The culprits were identified as slugs and snails, so preventative measures have been taken. The clear plastic bottle guards were upgraded and spikes added to the tops, ash and crushed egg shells surround each plant and there is a milk/beer trap.
