Knee High by the Fourth of July...

So goes the old saying to tell if you will get a decent yield of corn.

I was surprised with our wet spring the local farmers seemed to have gotten to that benchmark.
I even read that with all the advancements in technology they expect to get a good average year.

For me ... not so well,
My hybrid sweetcorn is about knee high but my saved Indian corn is lagging behind.
Everything was just too wet to plant on time, and then we were out of state for a funeral the first week it was dry enough to plant. I'll let you know this fall how the corn ends up.

Thinking of getting some buckwheat to put in the rest of my tinkering area.'

Still clinging to my God and my guns,
