how do you know when the seeds are ready to harvest?

typically the seeds fall out for you but I planted my sunflowers late so they would not fall out. This past weekend was our first frost where I live so I thought it'd be a good idea to harvest the seeds. thanks for the question!

First Frost?! Seriously?!...Do you live in Nova Scotia?

We are still sweating in the shade and probably wont see any frost, let alone snow.....

Well I don't know about you but it got really cold for a week in a row so my sunflowers started dying.
