Hi, just listened to you visit on the radio show, Farm Talk, with Mick Kjar in ND. He is my son, so ALWAYS listen and especially enjoyed the one today and listening to your ‘predictions’ and other things I’ve read the almanac for year.

Made the “Dirt” for my daughter-in-laws birthday @ her request. She had it years ago. Picked up french vanilla pudding instead of regular vanilla. She LOVED it, so did the grands and my son who’s not big on sweets.

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.
