SacBee Garden: Heat wave causes sunflowers to soar

Published: Saturday, May. 24, 2014 - 12:00 am

Sacramento Bee readers share their gardening adventures.

Recent heat made summer annuals and vegetable plants grow almost overnight. An example are these sunflowers in Fremont Community Garden in midtown Sacramento. They’re already close to 10 feet high – before Memorial Day. Tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and squash also are enjoying warmer temperatures.
