Here Comes the Sunflower

Did you know that you can use the head of a sunflower to scrub pots and pans? Or that it's legal in South Dakota to use fireworks to scare birds away from the valuable sunflower crops? Or that one sunflower in Germany was THIRTY FEET TALL!?

The completely edible sunflower is one of the most amazing and precious resources in our world, and I had an absolute blast learning about it for this piece. What a fabulous challenge! Love, allison s.
