Knee high by the Fourth of July has been the goal for corn growth for many years. New hybrids have improved growth and also allow earlier planting dates. Most of the corn on our farm this year is head high or taller. Almost dreams come true for an old farmer. Soybeans are looking great and our wheat is a nice yellow, soon to turn a rich golden color in preparation for harvest. It really feels good to be a farmer when growing crops look so spectacular. We pray for good weather conditions for the rest of the summer and the fall.
