Thanks to a great tip from a follower (yay for followers!), my sunflower seeds are outside drying in the sun. She suggested laying them out and covering them with a window screen to keep the birds out of them. We just happen to have replaced some windows yesterday and had the old screens out in the yard, so I spread the seeds on one screen, put the other screen on top, laid them out on a table and held them down with bricks.
Birds were the least of my worries, however, and I was more concerned about what Harry dog would do. He didn't seem to find them interesting and they are still out there, undisturbed. It's just about sundown, though, so it's time to bring them in.
