Knee High by the Fourth of July

One day recently, The Farmer returned home from the farmers' market and headed out to check the crops.


Here he is explaining something to our daughter, who took all these photos with her nice new camera.


It has been very dry here, with almost no rain. Intensive cultivation not only keeps down the weeds, but it brings moisture up from below.


Despite the drought conditions, he's pretty happy with how the corn looks. There is a saying among farmers that the corn should be "knee high by the fourth of July."


Looks like the corn will exceed that goal this year.

  1. Good to hear it will be tall enough and hopefully get the rain it needs soon.
