LAWRENCE, Kan. — What should be a field of blooming sunflowers is anything but at a popular Lawrence farm.
The owners of Grinter’s Sunflower Farm off of Stillwater Road say the weather ruined this year’s spectacle.
The couple wrote on Facebook saying the 100-plus days we saw back in July baked the ground creating a hard crust.
The sunflowers apparently couldn’t break through and basically steamed-cooked underground.
The Grinters planted more seeds Wednesday morning.
They say you might be able to catch a few sunflowers by Labor Day. They’re hoping for a more successful bloom the first week of October.
