Lots of rain, little benefit for sunflower field in Pittsford
The giant sunflower field off of Clover Street in Pittsford looks completely different this year than at this time last year.
Last August, the sunflowers were in full bloom. This year, not so much.
The area was hit with a lot of rain over the months, so the sunflower field didn't suffer from the lack of downpours. Rather, the field appears to have gotten too much rain.
Farmers told 13WHAM they did plant the sunflowers this year, but they didn't germinate because of the very wet spring.
