From the Farmers Almanac:

Corn Farmers’ Measuring Stick

Knee High by the Fourth of July” is an old saying once used by farmers to measure the success of their corn crops. Years ago, if corn had grown kneehigh by Independence Day, it was a good sign and meant they could count on high yields for the year.

It looks like a great corn harvest this fall.
