Harvesting Sunflowers





What is the method used in saving or threshing the seed from the Giant

Russian sunflower?



Cut off the seed heads of your sunflowers when the seed seems to be well

matured but before any of it falls away from the head. Throw these heads

on a smooth piece of ground or a tight floor and when they become

thoroughly dry thresh out the seed with a flail, removing the coarse

stuff with a rake and afterwards cleaning the seed by shoveling it into

the wind so that the light stuff may be blown away. A more perfect

cleaning afterwards could be secured with a grain fanning mill or a

simple sieve of the right mesh.
