An old sunflower stalk tried to kill me yesterday.
I was doing some clearing on Sunday and was moving a massive rotten sunflower stalk to the compost heap. I tossed it onto the heap but either the sunflower didn’t want to accept its fate or the heap was feeling over burdened because the stalk bounced back and beaned me right in the head. And you may not know this, but sunflower stalks, even old rotten ones, are really, really hard.
So beware the hidden dangers of sunflowers.
