The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
I learned this saying in Hillsdale, Michigan where I spent
most of my summers as a young boy, "If the corn is knee-high by
the 4th of July it will be a good crop". This was believed to be
true by all the local farmers.
James Callow comment:
See Puckett, Ohio, no. 32659: "If the corn is knee-high
by the Fourth of July, it will be a good crop...."
