Well yesterday we finally got out to do a proper inspection of the damage done as Ike travelled up here and dumped nearly 20 cm of rain in 2 days. The corn was just forming lovely full ears, but Ike desided he didn't like corn and so pushed it down to the ground. As of yesterday the corn has picked itself up a bit and we are "hoping" that it can still grow in this sorry shape. This has never happened to us before so do any of you know what it'll do? It was 6 ft high before!
Our tomatoes have been ripped off of their support poles but are still turning red so today they will be re-tied.
In happier news the Monarchs are migrating and yesterday we had at least a dozen in our front flower beds. Probiblly more, but they were not willing to sit still to be counted! The Goons and I chased them from flower to flower to take pictures! Hope you enjoy them!
