If you are driving thru Germany and see this sign pull over, you won’t be disappointed. This is the best idea ever! In between the rows  of corn and the field of squash the farms plant a small patch of flowers for cutting. This is self serve affair done completely on the honor system they even supply the knifes to cut the flowers with. The flower selection may vary by location and time of year but they usually have two or three options to choose from. The sign on the right roughly reads:

 Cut Flowers Self pay
Sunflowers .60€ each
Gladiolas .60€ each
Dahlias .50€ each
Please choose carefully and pay the appropriate amount.
Only paid flowers bring joy (friends)

This bunch of sunflowers will run you about 5 euro ($7)

The rows are planted in succession to insure fresh blumes for several months.
