Although the spring & summer were colder than usual, it looks like PepOmint’s corn is on track to be “knee high by the Fourth of July.”

While I couldn’t find anything specifically Michigan about that phrase, it did lead me to a social studies lesson on Growing Corn from Michigan History, Arts & Libraries which in turn led me to an Excerpt from Charles Estep’s Farm Diary, August 1884.
