A friend just forwarded information about The Great Sunflower Project which looks like a lot of fun.
By watching and recording the bees at sunflowers in your garden, you can help us understand the challenges that bees are facing.
~ It takes less than 30 minutes.
~ It's easy.
~ Free Sunflower seeds for planting.
~ No knowledge of bees required!Enter your bee counts online or send us your paper form.
There is also lots of great information on bees and why they are collecting this data.
I had actually been thinking that I want to do a better job at growing things this summer…although I am going to start small. I think that we will do the sunflowers and try maybe some lettuce in pots on the deck down at the beach. I love the idea of having an actual garden, but never seem to get around to actually pulling it off. So I will be more realistic this year and maybe have some success!
