Hand-harvesting sunflowers

  1. This is the only thing that makes sense to me...hes doing it for the birds...many farmers plant extra crops for the wildlife...they are gonna eat it anyway. My grandfather would plant feed corn around our sweet corn, this way the animals would eat the feed corn first allowing us time to get the sweet corn. Wonder if these are sacrificial sunflowers for the birds so they dont ruin the rest of the crop.

  2. I literally forgot, sunflower seeds were a thing. I was thinking what the hell are they doing this for sunflower serve no purpose, but being cute….

  3. Why the hell do Americans eat them by putting the whole ass thing in their mouth and then somehow deshelling them with their tongue and spitting out the shell and eating the seed inside, instead of just having a machine that deshells them before they get sold to people? That's not beyond the engineering capability we currently have. They could definitely make a machine that could do that.

  4. The good news is there’s a machine that will harvest all the sunflower seeds automatically. The bad news is it only works if the heads are a foot lower.

  5. One of Stephen King’s books has a bit that talks about sunflowers and it makes them super creepy. That’s what I always have in my head when I see sunflowers.

  6. The heads naturally bend down as the stalk starts to wither, doing this allows them to finish drying in the field but keeps the seeds in the head so they loose less to the ground

  7. I’m stupid. What exactly is he doing? It says harvesting but he’s not taking anything so I’m confused. Can someone explain?

  8. ELI5 what's the point of this? looks like he's just spiking them up again (inverted) they cant grow being inverted like that plus they're not even connected to the branch (just inserted) was it all just to trim those or the branches that got cut off serves some purpose?

  9. Imagine being one of the sunflowers further down the line watching him come towards you. Your friends being deftly decapitated and depressed onto their own spines one by one as he moves closer. The horror.

  10. Migrant farmers are truly machines of ingenuity. I saw a group (8?) of farmers detassle an acre of corn in under and hour. Unbelievable motor skills & purpose.

  11. The only thing that makes sense to me...hes doing it for the birds...many farmers plant extra crops for the wildlife...they are gonna eat it anyway.

  12. At first this looked impressive but then when you look closely you can see it's sped up to match the music. I thought this man just lived with the rhythm of we will rock you within his bones.

  13. What is this heretical cover? I’d rather listen to it on mute than have someone else polite my ears with a bargain store version of the original

  14. I have a feeling that learning do this the first time is about like learning to use nunchuks for the first time. The first week is brutal and leaves you scarred.

  15. I used to do this in my mid teens. Withouth gloves. Maybe a sun cap, would have the spikes in my fingers for at least a week after

  16. Saw this on Douyin (Chinese TikTok) literally yesterday and today it’s up here on Reddit, with the watermark cropped on top and bottom
