SacBee Garden: Heat wave causes sunflowers to soar

Warm weather speeds up summer flowers and vegetables.

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.

What’s happening in your garden? Tell us! Even better, show us! We’ll post photos to our SacBee Garden Facebook page as well as publish some in print in Home & Garden.
