Goliath Is Dead

I did the deed. I slew Goliath. I did it this morning with my bare hands. Goliath is/was my 9 foot sunflower. He(one must assume its a "he" by the name) was named Goliath by my friend Daniel....because "Goliath in the Bible was 9 ft tall" too. Goliath's head is now in a paper bag hanging on a nail in the garage. When he/it dries out, I am going to collect the seeds and plant them next season. I still have 2 more smaller plants to "take care of", but they are not ready just yet. Then the challenge will be to dig up their monstrous stalks. I will take pictures!
