Quite the failure with the tall sunflowers. I denied them certain nutrients in the hopes they would not create a flower bud. Now 3/4 have flower buds and they are only 6 ft tall or so. The tomato has a gazillion blossoms but is not setting any fruit. Apparently I denied it the nutrients it needs to actually set fruit, but not the ones needed to bloom.

I will have a totally new strategy for next year, which will include more water, nitrogen, and phosphorus, and a different pruning approach. I pruned some leaves off the sunflowers, but I dont think it was the correct ones.
