My Babies are Growing

I am not a green thumb.... in fact, I'm probably a brown thumb. I always have great intentions....and I read the "directions" on the seed packages; but I never seem to get it right!!! I can raise children..... but not plants or flowers or veggies or anything that grows from the ground!!

So, imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to find this:
That's right my friends, those are SUNFLOWERS and they are blooming.....and not just on one plant....but two.....that's right TWO!!!! I can.not.believe.it.
I have tried before, but never made it this far......
Now, this is where I need your help...... How do I transport my sweet babies into the ground without killing them....? Or do I just leave them in the pots?? Will they still grow big if they just stay in the pots?? Help me, help me my green thumb friends!!!

Sorry, my thumb is blacker than black. I am very impressed though, congratulations on your beautiful sunflowers!

those are nice looking. No clue about the transferring them part. I would suggest Martha Stewart for that answer.

Sorry, I have killed a cactus so I am no help but good job so far and good luck!

They just grow in my back yard profusely, without my having to do anything. I would guess they're pretty hearty and you would just need to plant them right in the ground.

Do NOT quote me on that. I'm lucky I can keep my kids alive day to day.

Cool for you and it is hard. I kill lots of plants, but I am still trying. Good luck and pretty blooms!
