One of my daughter's favorite songs to sing along to is Luke Bryan's "Rain is a Good Thing". The first line of the chorus goes "Rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey, whiskey makes my baby......".
Now this spring has been weird. It has rained three times in two months, and two of those times it rained maybe 15 minutes. Couple that with temperatures constantly in the 90's and my water bill is obviously going to be high. The problem is every time it does rain the wind blows 40 to 50 mph gusts at my house. The end result is my beautiful 7 foot corn plants are blown over again. This time not to the ground, but still blown over. I know people say it will right itself, but I just can't help straightening it when it happens.
So I say Luke Bryan got it wrong, rain doesn't make corn, the line should be: Rain makes corn blow right over...at least it seems to be that way for me this spring.
