Love the rain but we evidently got serious winds last night. My sweet corn patch is laying flat this morning. The only other thing is the dahlia which I had tied up was laying on its side. The OP corn doesn't seem to be hurt.

I could get really depressed..........JB have removed or destroyed all the leaves on the two little new plum trees. I hope they rejuvenate themselves later. Day before yesterday they were fine. I have kept them sprayed but not after the rain.

Nothing to be done but wait. Gardeners will endure!

Maybe the corn will straighten up. New plum trees with no leaves is bad. I haven't had too many J. beetles but I did notice them making holes in the four o clocks. I think I remember you read that four o clocks repel them. I am not in a good mood either. Weeds everywhere because I have been busy and now I have time and have to look out for copperheads. I am going to get the weed eater out and do what I can with that.

Glenda, I'm sorry about your corn. We had it happen once but it was because the racoons had a fun night. I know it's frustrating, but we all know the wind could have been worse --

How sad Glenda. Looks like we might get more storms today too.
