“Knee high by the 4th of July”

Posted by Lucy

Ryan and Lorlen Husman’s son Raylan, age 1, didn’t stand still long enough to determine the height of the corn in a field at Husman’s farm southwest of Kennebec Sunday night, but brothers
Griffin (5), who is shorter than the corn,  and Easton (10), demonstrate that the 2016 corn crop is more than knee high by the 4th of July!
Note the steel post  with black marks, on the left-hand side of the photo.  The Husman brothers are tracking the growth of the corn by marking the height every Sunday evening.  The corn grew a foot from June 18th to June 25th.
