Accept no substitutes! America’s oldest continuously published
periodical and best-loved annual is often imitated but never
equaled. This is the one, the only, Old Farmer’s Almanac!
Recognized for generations by its familiar yellow cover, the
Almanac for 2014 promises to be "useful, with a pleasant degree
of humor," fulfilling once again (for the 222nd time) the mission
set forth in 1792 by its founder, Robert B. Thomas. In addition
to its 80 percent–accurate weather, this year’s signature mix of
wit and wisdom, tips and advice, forecasts and fun includes . . .
• an astronomy quiz to test your Sky-Q • anglers’ six favorite
fish and secrets to hooking them • vegetables and other
perennial edibles to grow • the time in our lives: where it
goes, ways to make the most of it, and more • the whole truth
about whole grains • how to get bitten by a pet (if you’re not
careful) • rings around Earth (think Saturn) that might
influence our weather • health tips for each zodiac sign •
envelope and napkin jottings that changed the world • plus: Moon
phases and other celestial sightings, tides, historic trivia,
gardening tables, best days, and too much more to mention!
