I asked a similar question a while ago, when my sunflowers (whose seed packets said their seeds could be harvested) first started to wilt. I was told to let the flowers dry first and then the seeds would come out. Well, I've left them on the table on the patio for a couple of weeks now (or at least 1 week, I can't remember exactly when I cut them) and they are dry, but I still have to work really hard to pull the seeds out. Plus they seem really small compared to what you would buy in the store. Is this normal? Does anyone have a helpful tip for getting the seeds out?
