This was going to be a sunflower. Personally, I think sunflower sprouts are bitter, astringent, and basically awful. I hope this bird or groundhog friend decides the same, before she eats them all.
PLANTS ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY IN THE GROUND! I will relish the feeling of having been behind, once I'm no longer behind. Time could really slow down a bit; that would be alright, but I'm also pretty ready for these stick-like objects to burst into bloom.
