save seed

At the start of the summer we were gifted with a bag full of mammoth sunflower seeds saved from a friends garden. We planted them in our own garden beds and they quickly grew into proud and very tall flowers. The other day we cut them down(with a saw no less!)and plucked out their plump seeds to save for next season when we will plant them again. It is such a nice thing to do, such a celebration of the cyclical nature of life and a lovely way for new little hands to work away.
