Yesterday my garden was looking good with the exception of needing rain.
Got 1/2" of rain this morning along with 75 mph winds.
The corn is laying over at a 45 degree angle and the tomatoe cages are all a kilter.
Won't be able to really asses damage till I get home tonight.

Driving home tonight and looking at the fields blown down for a half mile at a shot for ten miles to the west of my place I could not help but think I had no right to complain about a few rows.
It is laid over pretty good but I think it will come through. It had not tasseled yet but the heads are forming so it won't be long.
The tomato cages were sat back up, and they are loaded so I think in another week we will have plenty.
Garden will come out of it.

Add me to the list of damaged corn also. Strong summer storm came through and dumped a ton of rain and got really windy. Blew over a lot of my corn, going to try to stand it up this afternoon. Had some large limbs come down too.

Chuck, They gave that wind a Spanish name? and said it went all the way from North Texas to Quebec(SP) Cannada.
It has rained for two days and the corn is upright. It has a distinct bow in the stocks(looks like a strung long bow) bit is upright.

I had a little damage Sunday night on the outside rows but nothing real serious. Corn is shoulder high.
