Ok 2-4 years ago growing ambrosia in upper michigan was a cake walk. I had no issues and loved every day except for one major thunderstorm looking at patio door watching my corn blow over killed me..
Last year was my first year growing corn or even a garden out here in western north dakota/montana/canadian border (aka oil fields of nd)
Long story short, their is many times we have high wind warnings here, easily sustained winds of 45-62 miles an hour, granted its not always that windy but usually the 15-30mph range and no trees to block the wind.
I need ideas this year for my corn. Ive mounted the stalks last year that helped some but they will end up bending over just above the mound of dirt.
Should I try and stake up each row with string??? Should I individually stake each stalk? That could be a pain. I plant rows in a 25x25 plot for corn.
Work doesnt allow me to be home every night. Sometimes I work in another location thats 3 hours away for a week. One time I came home to all my corn laying over. I almost drove over it with my truck because I was so upset...
I do not want to build a 6foot wooden fence around my corn plot...
I'm almost thinking I need tomatoe fencing or something but that could get expensive
