Happy 4th of July!

You guys remember that video I posted a while about the old saying, “Knee high by the Fourth of July?” You know, this one. Well, I decided that I needed to head back to that specific spot of that specific field, and do an update on just how much higher than “knee high” the corn really is.

Behold. Me, in corn. With leaves in my face.
Happy 4th of July, everyone! Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend. And when you eat all of those great seasonal/special occasions/cookout foods, be sure to remember the men and women who work hard to bring it to you!
(My supportive and hard-working cameraman requests that I give him due credit. Thank you for your riveting cinemographic work, Farmboy! You’re a wonderful production assistant!)
Also, don’t forget that most modern explosives contain corn…including those fireworks!

  1. That's a beautiful corn field! One of our family traditions is to take a picture of my husband (6 ft tall) and the kids in front of the corn field each 4th of July. Ours isn't quite as tall as yours yet (nor close to tasseling), but we're in Minnesota. 🙂

  2. @Minnemom,Thank you! That field sits on some of the best land in the area, and has the least amount of wet spots. I believe it's 107 day corn, and was one of the few fields planted on time. 🙂 I love that it's tasseling but I couldn't quit sneezing after that! Best of luck up in Minnesota.@Mike,Actually, that's on the shopping list…behind ground, a hopper-bottom, and a new(er) tractor…

Tell me what you're thinkin'!
