Received a phone on thursday while on vacation that a bad storm had passed through and knocked down all my corn. Didn't worry about it too much, we were heading home the next day and wasn't anything I could do about it then any way.
Now I have to admit that on the drive home I was thinking about what would be left of my garden. It would be too late to replant the corn. Much to my surprise most of the corn was still standing. What a relief to see that. There was some that had be blown over, but it didn't break the plant, so I tried standing them up and rigged some twine to keep them that way. I'll have to see if that works.
Everything else was fine. Hard to believe how fast some things grow. We have yellow squash coming out our ears. My wife has been blanching and and freezing it all morning. Cucumbers are coming on strong, just wanting for tomatoes to start ripening now.
