    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!

    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.
