So we planted a variety packSo we planted a variety pack of sunflowers and a pack of mammoth sunflowers to make a sunflower house for our daughter. It was doing great until we had a huge thunderstorm come through and sent half of them to the ground. They were mostly all drooping anyway. I think I planted a bunch too close together which I will amend for next year. My question is I now have a bunch of the heads with the seeds but I don't think any of them are ready to harvest. We only cut the ones that had their stalks snapped by the rain. The seeds are big but they're white. How do I go about getting these ready to harvest? I'd like to save some for next year and have some to eat.
