The pride of my garden! I noticed today that the huge ears are sagging to the ground. The lawn care company treated my yard yesterday and I think they might have sprayed it. It has been thriving all summer. Is there something I can do to save it :(

You might want to check with the lawn service to see exactly what it was that they sprayed, before you go ahead and cut all the leaves off your beautiful plant.

If it was only fertilizer, your plant might recover with just a really deep watering.
