It Was A Stormy Night!

It was nasty storm but I slept through like a baby because of the cool temperatures. It had been a long time since I slept so well. The early morning walk in the mini farm was just the opposite, it was a sad sight to see almost 50% of the corn plants succumbed to the strong wind of the storm last night.

Without a thought I started to gather the necessary materials to prop up the affected plants.

Hi-yah!!! It was towards the last plant that I realised that I would be feeding the plants in a day or two. Why not do it now, have the base of the plant stabilised with a mixture of earth and compost and a dash of burnt earth.


All up again. ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

Since the prop was already in place I just left them there. Hope that when the roots are better developed, they can help to support each other as claimed on the packaging.

Your corn plants still look nice and healthy even after being struck by wind. Fingers crossed they'll get a chance to put down a good root system before another comes along.

Those plants still look good to me. Time will tell.
Too bad about that unexpected hard wind.

Eileen, Sojerd thanks. Luckily I did it immediately in the morning instead of waiting till evening which I think the extreme hot weather would cause some damage.
