When sunflowers are getting their seeds ready to share with birds, squirrels, their sad faces begin looking down instead of up towards the sun. To harvest sunflower seeds for yourself to roast replant next year, tie a paper bag over the head as it dries to catch those seeds.
You can also cut the sunflower off the stalk as it begins to droop and place it in a box in a cool dry area to catch the seeds as they dry and fall off the head.
Plant your new seeds in the spring when the danger of frost has passed.
