I thank you very much. I have some special ones for if you'd like some? Checked my cameras and I see people stopping and getting pods from my piles. PS; they could of smiled at least.
that are going to the town barns. Just wish they'd take the whole plant? LOL I think rabbits love them to.

Thanks again Rodney for your help

Well thank you my dear would you like some of my seed?

I know right after I find your damn sun glasses.

I often think of that old 57 Chevy and the rainy nights we'd enjoyed watching movies at the old Drive In in Geneva. Didn't the bates family own or run it at one time.

You have the most beautiful Sunflowers as always my love!!!

In 1996, the company that made agent orange, Monsanto, started modifying seeds. Although to date I've never read anything about sunflower seeds being modified, folks need to know if their seeds are gmo's or not. Gmo seeds should be burned. People like the Dr is doing a great thing sharing these seeds. Many Seneca County farmers are using gmo corn seed. Is there anyone out there that has heirloom corn seed?

If these were "genetically modified organism" seeds then why would you suggest to burn tem wouldn't inhaling the smoke be toxic to the lungs?
About 20 yrs ago an old woman gave me two pods they were only one pod per plant . As the years went by I would rub two different pods fro from two different plants and soon I was getting plants with multiple heads on the. They also were getting huge heads then along came multiple colors. Last year I had several plants that gave 2 some times three heads from one stem sort of like Siamese twins ,"growing together" If I can locate my picture I will get them posted. The stalks were also from the original mother plant average size as a human's finger .Today they are as large as a human wrist This is how it started for me. As one year to another I would have all sorts of changes per plants, stem sizes, colors and number of flowers per plants also the seed itself were getting bigger and bigger.
I took a few different stalks to Ms. Sallies home to show here along with one hell of a load of pods to choose from.
Cliff Kraft from waterloo was given some seeds last year and he had some real different out comes where the seed themselves are as pure white as snow and completely developed and ready for
harvest now. I have never used fertilizer on any of my seeds or plants even after the growth has started. Over the years I have given several people seeds. Just lately I have seen similar plants as far as multiple heads but never stalk size nor height that I have been achieving as the years pass. (?) I do believe the crossing of "SELF" pollination I was doing may of caused these unique plants. In Europe they hold the world's record of some thing like 28'tall and heads measured from pedestal to
pedestal in excess of 32". I believe that's what I read about them when I started having these huge plants. After learning the correct way they are measured I may of lost out of a record because I was only measuring the seed pods which I have had some 18/21" results. The stalk size was also taken into consideration. This can be looked up in a net search.
Good luck to the people that get seeds. Some have been stopping and picking from what's left of my harvest. Last I counted tonight I have around 7 piles still waiting for me to gather and take to the towns buildings for disposal. I had 10 piles after harvest. Hope to complete the clean up by Monday.
I'm not a scientist so I make my conclusions on the cross breading I have done over the years. "Just helping nature and the bees out. The only question I don't have an answer for is how old was the original seed pods I was given because an old lady gave them to me with my promise to share because she was only growing them to remember her late husband who had pass some years before. Her plants were also of normal size and only one head per plant.

This is a good forum on seeds:

Seed Breeding

It looks like "if" the seeds had been modified its been bred out at this point. It also looks like the early 1900's they started modifying and that this is nothing new.

The seeds are terrific. Ms. Sallie loves them \:\) I like planting anything that will attract and keep the birds and bees surviving.
I also have plant flowers that attract Hummingbirds. This summer I have 6 Hummingbirds buzzing around.

Hmmm! Checked out the site you posted with no reference to Sunflower seeds

When they mentioned corn being crossed with Agent Orange is why My wife ,daughters are not permit to purchase any thing from South East Asia. Especially Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, no matter how cheap the food is. Why are we in the first place even buying any thing from these countries? You can bet the President and all other politician's don't eat from these countries.
Just think we do this and rope are farmers and common workers because it's cheaper. Like to hell with the American's lives.
