In the PNW forum I heard the saying that corn should be "Knee High by the 4th of July". That's today! Is that a regional thing or true for anywhere? Is your corn knee high? I want to see pics!

ours is anywhere from 12" to one that's over my head, I'm 5'6". I don't know why it's growing all weird, but that's what we have!! We also have some that's just sprouted, but we just planted it, so that's normal Smile

Of course you count Debs! I just wasn't sure if I should only ask in the PNW forum or if people in other areas use that saying as a reference too. Nice socks BTW - very festive! Laughing

I'm not in the PNW but I have aleady harvested one batch - there are several more meals of corn on the cob left. My 2nd planting is more than knee high but no tassels yet. I am going to put in more this week and am also planting beans - Rattlesnake & Dragon's Tongue, both for the first time.

Corn down here in the upper edges of the lower south is "as high as an elephant's eye". Definately head high to me 5'7". Farmers are starting to harvest. First corn is traditionally ready for 4th of July celebrations.

'Eatin by the 4th of July', Only if it gets planted early tho.

Here is 'Ashworth' organic, planted about 45 days ago, to be ready in 70, just now starting to tassel. Will only be about 5 ft tall, 3 ft now. Jo

I was raised with "knee high by the Fourth of July" here in Montana.
We always considered it unlikey though. Right now I have some just about that high,,,,, if you count where the leaves start bending down again. I need a little kid to say that the stalks are knee high Laughing

Well Debs, kudos to you for being the only person to post a picture standing by your corn. I appreciate the contortions you went through to get that shot yourself! (I'll admit, I was fishing for a picture of boffer in shorts and those long socks...) Razz

"As high as an elephants eye" - I like that.

Sorry about the deer damage cheyannarach. Sad

It takes 10 days to 2 weeks of hot weather for me to decide that it's time to put on shorts. Then, when I finally do, it rains the next day!

I'm gonna piggy-back on this thread instead of starting a new one cause I only have one thing to say. Corn grows SO FAST!!!!! I'm doing a little experiment with peaches and cream variety. I know it is very very difficult to get anything properly pollinated unless you have a large section for corn, but I'm just giving it a go and will try hand-pollinating. And really, just having fun watching those suckers grow. SFG is amazing!!!!!!!!! rock on
