I’m not even entirely sure what I did with most of my day yesterday, but I spent a while trying to get the appearance of my blog to look more like I want it to (with some success, ta-da!), and also de-seeded two sunflower heads, and cut down another enormous sunflower head to let it dry. I still have several others to do, as well. Since I grew these from heirloom seeds, I’ll be keeping some of the seeds to use as seeds for next year, and I plan on looking up roasting sunflower seeds as well. If I end up with more seeds than I can possibly eat or want to grow, there’s always the bird feeder to make use of extras! I may make some little pouches from sewn paper to share some of the seeds, too. As you can see, I got quite a few off of just the two flowers I de-seeded yesterday – for reference, those trays are each 17.25″ by 11.5″.
We went to the Puyallup Fair (the Washington State Fair) today. The name got changed at some point before last year’s fair, so it’s still referred to as the Puyallup Fair by nearly everybody. Destin and I split a funnel cake – deep-fried delightfulness covered in powdered sugar – and we managed to find a scone vendor that had no line, so I got a baker’s dozen Fisher Fair Scones. Yum! Last year the line was insane, so this was a pleasant surprise. We also checked out the draft horses, and some of the other livestock, and some of the vendors. I would never survive as a salesman like that!
It was a fun weekend, but I wish it was longer! I only got a little bit of sewing done, but there are always evenings this week!
