so i tried my hand at starting corn in seed pods and they've sprouted like crazy and look like they're ready to plant into the area i've set aside for them. thing is...in my area of new jersey, its been raining and storming off and on for weeks and the whole week ahead is forecast for more. i've read how rain has slowed crops this year but i can't find information on transplanting already sprouted plants with this wet forecast coming. does anyone have advice?

so long as the plants are still small and the soil where you want to put them isn't complete soggy mud, they should be OK.....
