This summer sunflower is so amazing that I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m sure it’s one of the most important things that you must do as a homeowner to ensure your home is beautiful. I know I’ve got a lot of other things to think about, but this one is a good example. I’m sure you will be surprised at how many people are thinking about sunflower sunflower seeds in the winter.
Sunflower seeds are one of the most common sources of energy in the world. Every year, we store more than a billion tonnes of them around the globe and more than two billion of them are consumed as a food source. And in this season of plenty, many sunflower seeds are harvested and stored up for long periods of time.
I was lucky enough to get to speak with one of the world’s experts on sunflower seeds. Sueann Sunshine, an associate professor of botany at the University of California, Santa Cruz, is the author of three books on sunflower seeds that include How to Harvest Sunflower Seeds (2009), The Sunflower Seed Book (2011), and Sunflower Seeds: Their Properties and Uses for Health and Home Use (2013).
And the most important thing to know is that the sunflower seeds have a long shelf life. They’re stored in a plastic bag inside a cupboard in the bedroom, where they’re kept in the sun at night until they’re ready to be harvested and then left on the island for years. We know that people who use them for this are probably getting sick or having seizures.
