The Sunflower has a neat history.
It was mainly produced by our
Native Americans for food and
medical purposes.

When travelors came from
Europe and other areas it is found
that Russia took on the farming of
this plant for its oil.

Even today many acres of sunflowers
are harvested for its oil properties.
Native Americans used the sunflower
to thicken stews made over the fire pit.
We enjoy the yummy taste of sunflower
seeds as a healthy snack.

Have a great day everyone,
sending hugs to all
Blessings Doreen
