I would never plant anything without referring to the Almanac. Over many years, I have had the most productive vegetable gardens possible by planting according to the moon and the Almanacs guidance. Now that I am a lot older I have gone to container gardening and I am just as successful! I lived in Pa. for many years and now live in central Fl. and plant Fall gardens due to extreme heat of Summer. I’d be lost without Farmers’ Almanac.

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.
