Reach For The Sky
Joe Belcher needs a ladder to aide daughter Tara, 9 , measuring her Mammoth Sunflower Plant now standing at 12 feet tall, with a stalk measuring 10" circumference at the base.
Tara is recording her sunflower's growth for a contest sponsored by the Master Gardeners. Children are encouraged to record their flowers growth through out the season by keeping photos, drawings and growth progress. Winners with the largest sunflower seed head will earn a savings bond to be judged at the Fall Festival's University of Missouri Extension Booth.
