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 growing season.
Below, Ephraim Gall, almost 2, is standing in the middle of an 80-acre cornfield at Elderberry Manor on CTH M just south of Paradise Drive about this time last year.
“Knee high” was always the saying but with improvements in genetics and pushing early planting dates we usually expect growth over the waist.
