Big storm

We had a pretty big storm come through early yesterday morning.  Between the two rain gauges, the garden received somewhere between 3.34 and 3.75 inches of rain in just a couple hours.   The weather station reported the lower number and as can be seen in the image below, the low-tech plastic gauge had the higher value.



Even though the winds didn’t seem too bad, the Sweet Corn around the outside of the bed didn’t enjoy the event.

I attempted to ‘fence’ in the wayward stalks in the hopes that they can right themselves in the coming weeks before it is time to start producing some ears.
