Knee High by the 4th of July

There is an old, old, old saying, corn should be knee high by the 4th of July. This may have been true in the 1800’s through the middle of the 1900’s but is no longer so. This is the corn we planted in May.

The  corn pictures were taken last Saturday. Early Tuesday morning a wind storm moved through our farm and the corn was blown down.

IMG_4313It’s been 3 days since the storm and the corn has started to straighten. We’ll see if it makes it completely upright again. We did have some damage to a barn (more about that in another post) but it could have been so much worse. We are very thankful severe damage didn’t occur.

Fussy Cut Fridays will return next week.
