Reaching for the skies
After perhaps taking a cue from the weather, our companywide sunflower competition is hotting up nicely. So we asked two good-natured opponents to head into the dirt, ready to measure…
The number of seedlings planted this year shows a true team effort, not only for fundraising, but also in an effort to involve those who prefer to spend their time outdoors rather than in the kitchen.
With a little TLC to help the sunflower seeds reach their full potential, Pete and Tina’s plants have taken a steady lead on the competition with Pete’s stalk stretching to a height of 9 foot 4” and Tina’s a very respectable 5 foot 5”. Though some with less determined seedlings may blame this on the extra time the plants have had to grow, the plants add character to our HQ that we are extremely proud of.
Well done to everyone whose seedlings have taken root, you’re all still in with a chance. With 2 in the lead and 6 in the running, keep an eye on our blog to see which will have that extra bit of stamina in reaching for the skies.
