I dropped almost 100 sunflower seeds into this bed, not thinking that they would pretty much all take
Is this bad news being so crowded and so close to the house?

Welcome!

I'm not sure what problems a bed of sunflowers could be. It will be pretty when they all bloom.

Your spacing looks fine, but keep it to 6". They will appreciate a 2-6-6 a bit on the heavy side. And they benefit from 4' stakes. If you have too many for that, let them grow up through some 2" x 3" wire mesh set about 2' tall horizontally. The stems will thank you.
