Knee high by the 4th of July is an old farmer saying and benchmark for a good corn crop. But with improved seed genetics and farming practices, farmers expect their corn to be at least waist high if not head high, like we are seeing this year on our farm in North Iowa.

I'm amazed at how fast the corn grows. It seems like just a few weeks ago everyone was planting. Nice family pic! :) I'm also kind of cracking up at K's open shirt. I just love your kids!ReplyDelete
The nice sunny days and rain have really helped the corn pop up. As you know, we let the kids dress themselves and he said it was too hot to button his shirt...Delete
The corn is looking so good right now!!! I noticed the open shirt as well and comment to Chris on it. :-) I love the new blog look as well. Very nice and clean looking and easy to navigate. Good job!ReplyDelete
Thanks Beth Ann.Delete
Not only has your corn grown but your family! I haven't stopped by in awhile. I hope sweet corn is doing as well and I get a treat on my visit back soon!ReplyDelete
Sweet corn is also doing well. It is starting to be available more and more as weeks go along. I'm sure you'll find some on your visit back. We haven't had any yet but we hope to have some of our own ready next week.Delete
My grandfather always said "As high as an elephant's eye by the Fourth of July!" Some years that elephant may have been kneeling.ReplyDelete
Love the yearly photos!
As high as an elephant's eye! Wow! That's tall.Delete
What I should have also done is take a photo of us in one of our soybean fields. They're probably knee high.
I also love the new look of the blog! And, that corn is crazy! And LP is such a little stud with his unbuttoned shirt! Your kids rock!ReplyDelete
his is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the excellent work.ReplyDelete
