While my kids hate it. They are strange. :):)

But do they hate the activity itself or the fact that you're making them do this during holiday? lol

Don`t tell my students

Don't worry, I won't tell anyone ;D

My guess is that you took out the seeds to dry them, so they wouldn't go bad or mouldy (thanks to this you can eat them later on). I don't know about the sunflowers though.

Yes! But I took out some while the rest remained in the flowers.

you could eat them later on

How?

Dry them in the flower and hang them out in the dead of winter for the birds to eat.
That's what I do with mine anyways.
The dried seeds sell for .80 cents per pound.

Not bad, actually quite a good idea but not. My birds feed on the stuff they find in natural environment, typical for the countryside.

Um... Are you going to use those sunflowers to make compost?

How?

I'd just eat them the way I'd eat fresh ones... You could roast them too, I guess...

Who are those people?:

Yes, Antonina Żabińska! :)

There was a film made about this couple. Do you know why?

Of course they saved the Jewish family or a Jewish girl right? from Bobko like invaders.

Yes, Jan Żabiński was the director of the Warsaw Zoo before and during the World War II, which was one of the biggest zoos in Europe at that time. Him and his wife saved 300 Jews by hiding them in their villa and in the zoo itself, for which they were recognized by Yad Vashem as Righteous Among the Nations. 298 of those Jews survived the war.

Jan was also a member of AK (Home Army) in the rank of lieutenant and participated in the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. A street in Warsaw was named after him.

The film about their heroic rescue of Polish Jews is titled "The Zookeeper's Wife" and stars an Oscar winning actress Jessica Chastain as Jan's wife. I've watched it for the first time this week and I can honestly recommend it, especially these days, with war over our border, it feels all too relatable...

Well, in another thread I revealed I am going to make sprouts of them. Very useful in winter time when truly fresh veg is rare.

Sprouts, sprouts.......

I have an idea!

Guys, which plant has such sprouts???? It isn`t Polish in origin but Poles like me like it.

Yes! Which is quite curious coz the Chinese developed this bean for sprouts mainly. Amasing!
