Dear Mama-Nature...I don't like you today.

Thank you for the rain, but you could have kept the 60+MPH winds to yourself.

Sincerely,
A sad gardener who will miss her corn.

That stinks! Any chance it will right itself?

oh, so sorry! :(

Unless the roots pulled out from the ground or the stalks are actually broke off it should come back enough to still have sweet corn!

That is amazing. I hope it pops back up.

We have had storms that did that to our sweet corn before. Most times it will come back up out of it. One year we had a storm that laid all the corn towards the north. The very next day we had a storm that pushed it to the south. LOL. The corn made it. Hope yours comes out of it. Winona

That does look pretty sad, and I thought we had it bad here in Brisbane yesterday: we were getting our driveway stenciled and the guy had to quit doing it and go home because the winds were so fierce that the spray was going everywhere but on the concrete.

OH NO! That is so sad. Maybe some of it will bounce back?? Corn is hard to grow here.

I hope it's still ok for you!
We just had some powerful storms last night. I think it flattened the oats fields. I haven't been to check my little garden yet.

I hate it when your corn lays down on the job.....giggle!
I bet it stands back up and you have great corn when all is said and done!

Bummers!!!! I hope the other comments are right and the corn will pop back up!
I think corn is pretty hardy??

There has been some seriously weird weather!

Don't give up on it, just lift it up and heel it in (tread with heavy foot aound base).

I heard the tornado warnings up your way and I was hoping you were safe and sound. Yikes! I hope the corn can be saved.
