My First Farmers Almanac

I bought my first Farmers Almanac the other day and I can’t believe I didn’t buy it sooner!

I always thought the Farmers Almanac was all about the weather.  Boy was I surprised when I found tons of fantastic information!

Yes, it does have weather information,  BUT, on page 8 I found out how to get rid of weeds with out pulling or chemicals and it’s easy!  You pour boiling water on them or use a mixture of dish washing liquid (5 tablespoons) and water (4 cups) in a spray bottle!  I also learned how to make a “Homemade Jar Opener”, “No-Mess Baking”, ways to cut energy costs, how to save on gas, even a section on comfort foods (my favorite).

I plan on buying one every year!  They are really a wealth of information!

    I’ve been reading the Farmer’s Almanac for years. I guess because my grandmother always had one at her house and she always sent me home with her copy. Lots of interesting stuff inside.

  3. I’ve never bought a farmer’s almanac but my grandfather loves them, he gets one every year, even though he hasn’t had a farm in ages!

  4. I’ve never had one either… but I might have to after this!

  6. I always side eye these but never pick it up. I’ll have to check it out.
