Corn down

1 Comment

We had some straight-line winds this afternoon that took down my 3 cute little stalks of corn.  Such a bummer, not necessarily because we lost the three cobs of corn that we would have gotten, but because my precious pole beans lost their support structure.  Here’s the damage:

I am still holding out hope that it will right itself once the wind dies down.  The stalks are not broken off, just kind-of bent.  I’ve never grown corn before so I don’t know how it works.  Here’s how it looked just 2 days ago:

I do not have the energy for dealing with this tonight, so I’m going to wait and see how things look in the morning.
