The tallest sunflower

After much climbing up and down a step-ladder, yesterday I determined that Bro. Clarence's sunflower was indeed the tallest at 14 feet 7 inches, which beat out Bro. Juniper's rather spindly, yet tall sunflower, by three inches. I should note that the growing techniques were completely opposite, Bro. Juniper never seemed to do anything after planting the seed, of course besides watering, yet Bro. Clarence can always be found at or near his sunflowers, and as our deadline neared, he has set up a chair and umbrella near his sunflowers. And we still have a few weeks before we will be measuring the sunflower heads, so no doubt he will continue his vigil.
