Crop prediction

Knee high by the fourth of July. If the corn stalks are at
knee height, then the crop will be abundant. If the crop is below
this point the crop will be rather sparse.

Submitter comment: Jennifer's father is a farmer and so is her grandfather. Many
generations of farmers have worked the land she lives on. Her
family has acquired many superstitions and sayings about farming
in general.
