Wanted to give a visual update on the sunflowers we planted May 3 (click for the bigger picture).

The 10 I first posted about here are in the foreground — pretty much peat-pot-and-all transplanted into the ground in the same order as they were in that photo.

The rest behind were planted in a row and are growing at a much slower pace than the potted ones, only one of which didn’t make it. I thought the same fate in store for the seed in the pot front and center, but after getting munched on by a slug, it seems as if the late-bloomer might be making a comeback.

I’m rooting for it.
