well 3 months ago flooding and to much rain. last month I was begging for a shower of rain. Well in the last 3 days back to flooding. here are a few pics to see. I have more.

this is my corn field, I planted it for the 2nd time last thursday.

just lot let you see how deep it is. I am in my JD4040, on the lane which goes through the farm

Next is a picture of my dads cousins garden. if you look in the back corner of the garden you will see 1 fence post shorter then the rest. it is 5 foot tall

everything you see under water on the right side in the garden was sweet corn and peppers, tomatos are the plants you can see up close

Smigeski I hope it drains off with no harm done. Since the corn probably hasn't put out roots yet it may not have hurt it.
