    I’ve always heard that,if it rains on Easter Sunday, It will rain for the next 7 consecutive sundays

  • Nancy says:

    I have always heard to give the Lilac bushes a whipping to make them bloom

  • Kristie says:

    Wish i knew if i was pruning my lilac right way i just clip off what diesnt hv flowers or leaves..got flowers in my tree this yr after prunning..but not a full bush of flowers

  • Sherri says:

    I’ve never heard of Midsummer on June 24th. I am Wiccan, and, going along with calendars, we celebrate Midsummer (Litha) either on June 21st or 22nd, depending on the year. Has it ever come on the 24th? I don’t recall ever seeing that date listed as Midsummer.

  • David M. Ashlock says:

    For Bridgette,
    Acidic soil will give blue flowers non-acidic soil gives pink flowers ..They also need a few hours of morning sun to bloom.

  • Gramma says:

    Lilacs should be pruned right after they finish blooming, not in the fall. The same goes for Forsythia. These bushes bloom on new growth made after they finish blooming, so if you’re pruning them in the fall, you’re pruning off the blooms for the following spring.

  • Jen says:

    In New Hampshire it has literally RAINED every single day just about for over a month. This is getting VERY OLD!!!!!!!!!! Also on comment above about lilacs…..I have same issue, the lilacs just won’t produce many flowers! And yes I cut back the few dead ones in the fall. Pretty sure lilacs flower heavily every other year, at least in New England that is the case. I’ve tried mulching, fertilizing, still one small tree this year produced ONE measly flower 🙁

  • Theresa says:

    For blossom rot, your soil needs more calcium. Crush up egg shells and put around the plants. Next fall, till them into the soil.

  • Donna Cote says:

    I was just wondering what we can do to promote more flowers on our Lilac tree’s. Eight years and still not flowering much. Planted in a nice wet area but still doesn’t get many.

  • Lisa Sonnier says:

    It has been a rainy start for June will we ever be able to cut the grass

  • Theresa Thompson says:

    It has rained so much in Northwest Mississippi this year and cold, and we haven’t planted our corn yet, is it too late?

  • JOHN BARRY Ryan III says:

    For Bridgette, you need an acidic soil. Try using your coffee grounds or left over coffee around the plant. That will give you a variety of colors.

  • Lyn says:

    You need to cut back the stems in the fall.

  • Vicky says:

    Prune in late winter before bud generation begins. You can cut back all the stems to the strongest, biggest bud in the winter. Pruning at this time will help the shrub produce bigger, showier flowers.

  • BRIDGETTE says:

    I have a hydrangea bush that only blossomed once or twice in 15 years…it only gets full with leaves no flowers…can you offer some advice on why this is happening…

  • Dawn says:

    In our area, southeastern Arizona, June is the month when the monsoons rains begin. Usually around the middle of the month. We are a desert area and get most of the rain for the entire year from the middle of June though the middle of September.

  • Jim says:

    Your squash need more calcium udr a lime water mix around the base of hill

  • Wallace Presley Jr says:

    We had one of the coolest and wettest month of May, will June flip flop back into midsummer or carryover into this month? Because so far we (in the northeast) have been above average in temps the last week and a little dryer!

  • robert says:

    Its been dry here 80 to 90s

  • Sherri Nicol says:

    It seems like in our area (Western Maryland mountains), June is typically very wet – sometimes with flash flooding; however, being as we got SO much rain in May (I think last count was 20 days), I’m hoping we can have a drier spell for a while.

  • Rhonda martin says:

    Gina is right! My squash is already rotting on the hill, from the blossom end. I assume it’s too wet. (Zone 7, Arkansas)

  • Gina Oberste says:

    I’m interested to see how many of these transpire..I know a fact so far about June, rain, and our garden…. If we continue to get the rain we’ve been getting, our crops will get root rot before they get a chance to make!! (Zone 7, Arkansas)

  • 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.
