Answer: If the plants were healthy before the rain, they may pick up after a few sunny days. It's possible, however, that being submerged for such a prolonged time damaged the roots. Whether they can recover from that damage, only time can tell. It seems,so often, like there's either too much water, or not enough water! If you have a heavy clay soil, you can improve its drainage by adding lots of organic matter when you till up the bed--leaves, grass clippings, compost, etc.
