Have any of your older members taught the old "rule" that was commonplace among farmers many years ago?"Knee high by the fourth of July."With all the modern development in seed genetics and farming technologies, that has become now merely a quaint phrase.
And, have your farmers ever shown you the "first the blade and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear" reality of the hymn?
"Knee high by the fourth of July" is still quoted in Ohio, though the actuality this year has been somewhere around my chest...and I'm no small guy. :)
Knee high to Paul Bunyan, maybe.
