View attachment 62452 View attachment 62453 7/13 update!! Everything coming along nicely. I planted the perdovick seeds. My plants average about 4ft tall. With some around 5ft tall. Starting to head out. Most just have 1 head on them, but did notice some with multiple heads?? Is this normal? Also for the guys who planted Clearfield seeds. How tall are your plants? I’m not expecting the heads on mine to get as big as the ones hunt-4-life posted.. Maybe because of the type of seed I planted.
Fields looking great HuntsItAll,
I planted the Clearfield and they are about 6'-7" tall at this point. Once the heads fully form and they start to dry down they will end up about 5' tall after the heads droop over and face the ground. 99% of the plants will have 1 head, there are some odd ones that have multiple but their heads never develop as big as the others. I do have about 6 rows that I double planted due to using the wrong plates... those plants are smaller and super close together; will be interesting to see head develop on those. I think I may like hunting over 4' sunflowers, would be easier to mark birds down. May have to try some of those next year. Keep us posted on the head development. I would assume head development has more to due with soil conditions but I am just speculating at this point.
