Hi Ginger,
Here’s an article about that from another site:

I really have a question so I will ask it and hope that someone will give me some information. I am not going to put in my small garden this year, but instead will have a l herb garden used for cooking. The other products I use such as tomatoes, peppers and everything else I will purchase from the farmer’s market to help them a little. The question, I read somewhere that I could grow a small lemon tree in a pot… this possible and how? Do I star it with lemon seeds and anything else that can help me. Thanks.

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.
