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. In fact, our family has been taking an annual "Knee High" photo for the last decade (see 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012).
This year's planting season was delayed due to the cold temperatures but we were happy to get everything planted still in a reasonable amount of time. The warm temperatures have helped the crops sprout up here lately and this morning's rain was very welcomed as things were starting to get dry. Our corn and soybeans are at critical stages of their growth so we are praying for some additional moisture to help our ears of corn and pods of soybeans develop.
We hope you all have a great Independence Day! What are some of your favorite 4th of July traditions?
The corn is head high and so are the kids. It is fun to see the changes from year to year.ReplyDelete
You’re so right about “Knee high” no longer being the standard, but it’s still fun to measure corn and child growth on Independence Day!ReplyDelete
