This is a saying that we have in Wisconsin If corn is knee high by the fourth of July right on target Corn is planted from as early as end of April/May  to end of May/June about 65 - 90 days

Once an ear feels plump and full when you squeeze it, pull back the shuck near the tip and pierce a kernel with your fingernail; it’s ready to harvest if the juice is milky.
 
Try to harvest corn in the morning, when the ears are cool. Refrigerate them immediately or put the corn in a cooler and layer it with ice. Sweet corn can be canned in a pressure canner, but most people prefer the speed and convenience of freezing. Blanched corn off the cob takes up much less freezer space compared to whole ears.
