Lewiston, ME: At a time when information sources may be questionable, a two-century-year-old publication returns with many of life’s answers: Farmers’ Almanac 2024. Generations of readers turn to the Farmers’ Almanac for valuable gardening advice, extended weather forecasts, fishing tips, and helpful bits of wisdom that get better with time. This year’s edition features an expanded astronomy section with special viewing information for the upcoming solar eclipse, as well as top sky events for 2024, and when and where to look for shooting stars.
Each annual edition contains 16 months of weather forecasts as well as the “Best Days” to start seeds, pull weeds, cut your hair, travel, and go fishing. “We want you to learn something new every day,” shares Sandi Duncan, managing editor, adding “yes, the Farmers’ Almanac offers extended weather forecasts, no you don’t have to live on a farm to read it, but if you are looking to connect with wisdom of yesterday that applies to today, it’s in the Farmers’ Almanac.”
Hallmark features of Farmers’ Almanac include fun folklore, natural remedies, gardening tips, and answers to questions you may have always wondered about. For instance: Ever wonder why garden gnomes are so popular? How about where sayings like “Let the cat out of the bag,” “Baker’s dozen,” or “Hair of the dog that bit you” come from? Farmers’ Almanac answers these questions and so much more. Natural remedies and hints include how to make flour out of chickpeas, remove oil stains from your clothes, and soften avocados quickly.
