Rain Rain Go Away...Come Back After We Get Everything Planted!!!

These poor plants have been stuck indoors for over 3 weeks because the field was too wet and unworkable. This week they finally made it out...poor skinny plants hope their catch up soon. 
These corn plants below were planted early July took them 2 weeks to fatten up their stems and leaves. They need all the fertilizing they can get to grow from now to harvest...if we do get any out of them. 
First attempt in growing potatoes. Aren't they beautiful? Got a few spring harvest out of them. The little nuggets were really sweet....though they were somewhat harder to cook than the mature ones. The ground between the rows are flooded with about 2 to 3 inches deep water...all that came from the non-stop rain we have had in the past few days. At this rate the large field will never get planted.
