A sad day for corn
I was heartbroken when I went out to work in the garden after the rains broke today. Most of my corn was flattened, stalks broken, laying all about in the middle of the garden. As a grower of plants, I never thought I'd say this but I wish it would stop raining! The ground is so soggy that the plants' roots just can't hold them upright. I had to pull several rows of corn, filling a cart with the poor tattered plants. That'll be a nice week or so of greens for the birds. What was salvageable I staked up as best I could. Hopefully it will make it to produce some corn. It has tasseled so we are getting close!
