Farmers' Almanac Hints & Tips

A collection of helpful hints for everyday life.

Stop the pain and itching of poison ivy by rubbing a watermelon rind over the rash and don’t rinse it off. Allow it to dry naturally. Watermelon is high in water and creates a soothing effect on the rash. Another option is to use banana peels!

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.
