So after a year of planning and 40 hours of work, he asked Stacy Martin to marry him Monday using a cornfield.
"At first I was in shock and forgot to say, 'yes,'" Martin said
Rueckl, 23, had tilled a 40,000-square-foot message, "Stacy will you marry me," and two hearts into a cornfield near the Manitowoc and Kewaunee county line.
Rueckl, an employee of the Farm Service Agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, used his educational background, the fact that his fiancée grew up on a farm and his love for computer-mapping programs to create the message in the 5-acre farm owned by his boss.
