Love this web-site!!! I’ve only been a member about a month and just started checking out the recipes. I’m in love with them! I hate recipes that you have to go to the store and by special ingredients for. These take what you have on hand or the garden and whip upsomething new and interesting. It really is a God send to those of us who have very picky eaters!!!

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.
