As surely as the Sun rises in the east and maple leaves turn color in autumn, The Old Farmer’s Almanac is back—and it’s better than ever!

 

Recognized for generations by its familiar yellow cover, America’s best-loved annual and oldest continuously published periodical (now in its 224th year!) promises to be “useful, with a pleasant degree of humor,” once again fulfilling both the mission set forth by its founder, Robert B.

• traditionally 80 percent–accurate weather forecasts

• how to make sausages at home

• “creatures from hell”

• grow your own beer (ingredients)

• time- and money-saving tips

• unmasked mysteries of plant seed dispersal

• bale, key, and concrete block gardens

• quirky origins of American horse breeds

• history, lore, and more about birthstones

Plus, Moon phases and other celestial sightings, tides, gardening tables, best days to do things, and more.
