Hello again. Last night we had a violent storm pass through (winds up to 80mph). While the damage to our property and garden could've been worse, I did, possibly, lose all of my corn. Now, I only have about 10 stalks, but was still looking forward to it.
All of the corn was lying on its side. The roots of the tallest stalks are visible, and, although not completely severed, are only 2 inches or so long. I am thinking about putting some type of support next to each one and stand them back up, and put a little mite soil around them. I have some ears that were probably a week our two from being ready to harvest, some that were a few weeks from being ready.
My question is this: do you think they are salvageable, or should I harvest the ones that were almost ready, and expect the others to die?
Also, my tomato plants, while still rooted, were blown partially over, my trellis having been destroyed. I'm thinking that they will be okay. Any ideas about what to look for regarding them as well?
We're all safe, so I'm thankful, but... my poor garden.
Oh, I need to add, that like a lot of the country, it's been near 100Ã‚Â° for the last couple of days, and will be today as well.
