Will it make it?

Wow, it's June 19th already... doesn't seem possible, what with all the crazy, cool weather we've had. The 4th of July is only 2 weeks from tomorrow! This is a photo I took yesterday of our nearest cornfield:

Here's my little 6-year-old assistant standing out in it:

She's showing you just how short the corn is... looks like only about 10 inches.

Whaddya think? Will it be "knee high by the 4th of July", in order to make a decent crop?

Here's what it looked like last year by the 4th:

It has some growing to do, doesn't it?!

Seems like an impossible job for those plants. I will however engage in a corn growing dance of encouragement for ya.

Ah. Let's hope this lovely sunshine will be like corn growth hormone for your stalks. At least the bunnies didn't get 'em like they got my peas.

Sunshine will definitely help! Yeah, bunnies don't bother corn much. Sad about your peas. :(
