Salsa, sweet 100s, & sun gold tomatoes. Marigolds, cornflowers, phlox, daisies, & sunflowers yesterday. Going to directly sow in a week or two - summer squash, peas, beans, cucumbers, snapdragons & probably some more of the flower seeds I started seedlings of.

The sunflower is the state flower of Kansas. That is why Kansas is sometimes called the Sunflower State. To grow well, sunflowers need full sun. They grow best in fertile, wet, well-drained soil with a lot of mulch. In commercial planting, seeds are planted 45 cm (1.5 ft) apart and 2.5 cm (1 in) deep.

I can’t keep the chipmunks from digging up the seeds long enough to germinate

Cover the seeds with ground cayenne pepper. Squirrels and chipmunks have very sensitive noses. It should piss them off enough to not go for your seeds after a few seconds. You do have to reapply after it rains tho
