Washington Co., WI – Knee high by the Fourth of July is an old-timey saying in the farming community; an early visual that could signal a prosperous corn growing season. It’s past July 4 now but this cornfield seems to have something to prove as it stands well over the Feucht children’s heads.
Meet Morgan, Kelsey and Kemper Feucht. This photo was taken in their parents’ field near Town of Herman.
“Knee high” was always the saying but with improvements in genetics and pushing early planting dates we usually expect growth over the waist.
