First Sunflower Bloom of the Season at Harshell

We were over to the field to check for blooms last evening and spotted the first one for 2020.  It won’t be long now with peak bloom likely in 7-10 days.

Please note our signage when visiting:

  • Do not enter the field – it is private property  and the sunflowers can be viewed equally well from outside the fence
  • Sunflowers are easily damaged by “touching” and we are depending on the plants to stay healthy and provide us a good yield of sunflower seed to feed our local birds
  • Herbicides are used on the crop, throughout the season to manage weeds, pests, and disease – do not touch the plants
  • take as many photos as you like and be sure to catch the sunset, over the field, some evening – promises to be breath taking

Check it out – 20 acres of pure beauty on Blakeney Road, North of Village of Blakeney and South of Panmure Road.

If you love the sunflowers feel free to  make a donation, in memory of our daughter, to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

You can also pick up a bag of our black oil sunflower seed from Levi Home Hardware in Almonte or at our farm on Martin Street North.
