The 4th of July is a great time to celebrate our country's independence, show off your patriotism, spend time with family and friends, shoot off fireworks and check crops. It's been tradition for decades that farmers check their crops, especially corn, to see if it is "Knee High by the 4th of July." Now while knee high isn't the benchmark for farmers anymore due to hybridization and improved genetics, it is still a fun tradition for our family to benchmark our corn (and family's) growth every year (see 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012).

One way I'm celebrating National Ag Week this year, is reaching out to the next generation to share about our farm, through donating Ag Baby Bundles to all the new babies born this week at my local hospital.

Carrie Chapman Catt was always defying the odds. From graduating high school and then college, to becoming a school superintendent, to becoming a leader in the women's suffrage movement and founding the League of Women Voters. She was always pushing the envelope, and it all started growing up on a farm outside of Charles City, Iowa.

March is National Pasta Month so my Celebrate 365 co-hosts (Carlee from Cooking with Carlee, Ellen of Family Around the Table, Jan of The Tip Garden and Nicole of Tales of a Kansas Farm Mom) and I thought that sounded like a great reason to throw a blog party full of everyone's favorite pasta recipes!

Community. Community can mean a few things. It can be tied to location or tied to common interests. I'm lucky and get inspired by both realms of my community.
