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!
