“Roses are red, violets are blue…” We have the Valentine’s poems submitted by you!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love is in the air. We recently asked our Freebie Friday* contestants to brush up on their poetry skills and finish the poem, “Roses are red, violets are blue…” for their sweethearts for Valentine’s Day. We had 70 entrants and our judges selected two winners. Here are some of the responses. Feel free to add yours to the comments section below.

Winners received a 2017 Farmers’ Almanac and a jar of Maine-made honey from our online store.

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 1919, 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.
