As a young girl, I remember that many truck farmers would plant various vegetables during certain phases of the moon. Plants that produced above the ground were planted during the light of the moon and vegetables that produced below the ground were planted during the dark of the moon.

Mikki There’s a lot schools are not teaching these days, to busy getting the kids ready for stars, tass and sat tests. If it wasn’t for Lincolns face on the five dollar bill they wouldn’t even know who he was.

Mikki, that’s a great question. I feel it definitely would.

Two beautiful names for one moon. It was great last night. Can’t wait for tonight to see the yard lit up from the moon & moonlight garden. Might be a good night to camp out.

Lovely story about the strawberry moon and the rose moon. It makes me ask the question: If this sort of information was taught in school, would kids become more interesting in astronomy, space, research, etc.?

Love this kind of knowledge. It is part of our history & culture we should all enjoy. Thanks, FA !

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
