The pollinators are going crazy on my Mexican Sunflower! The honeybees are super thick and the Monarchs love it, too. Thank you FGCU Food Forest for the cuttings! It's over 12' tall and blooming profusely with no work at all and the soil loves all the extra nitrogen. 💘. #sunflowers #yellowflowers #pollinators

That's the west side of my chicken coop and run, by the way.
