    They say you will have a good corn crop if it is knee high by the Forth of July.

    Ken, that must be pretty satisfying to produce something like those crops on a space of ground, like a creation. Very powerful. Congratulations. I hope you make a nice profit and that you haven;t traded it all away to Goldman Sachs in futures contracts.

    Knee high by the 4th was before the hybrids. Now it's at least waist high or taller.

    Knee high corn at the 4th of July is dead or dying. If you're going to eat it, it should already be picked by now.

    Corn around here is tasseling and the silks are out. If it doesn't go dry, the corn crop should do well.

    My corn is at least eight feet in some spots, sunflowers are six to eight and beginning to bud out flowers, deer have eaten two rows down to eighteen inches high. Chufa is undetectable at present.

    Here in N Texas corn was a bust after a fall and winter of day after day rains, delayed planting and it quit raining so now it's being cut for sileage because of aflatoxins


    Glad yours turned out good, hope you can get it to the bin without something else causing problems

    It's that high in the field behind my place, but I think it's mostly due to the fact that they got into the fields to plant nearly a month earlier than normal!

    All the rain in June was a big help, too...
