    I am going to take the quiz again (I got a C) and write the answers down! Several of the sayings I heard from my mother whose family members were lifelong farmers.

    We’ve always heard “A dry June will scare you to death and a wet June will starve you to death.” (That’s why I missed #6.)

      Hi Bob, interesting! We hadn’t heard that one, but that’s why we enjoy customer comments! We learn something all the time!

  • Thersia says:

    I missed 2 which I got a C. I liked that it gave the correct answers of the ones missed. My Daddy was born in 1913 and had a saying for everything. Just wish I had written them all down. Two reasons I love Farmer’s Almanac. My parents went religiously by what it said, so it’s been a common thing in all of my life. And my childhood is relived thru things like this. Thank you all for the hard work and dedication that’s put into our beloved Farmer’s Almanac!!

    I would like to know the correct answers. I got a C, but I don’t know which ones I missed and what the correct answers were.
    Thank you

  • Debi says:

    what are they all this is just a bit of them

  • 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.
