It's Farmer's Almanac Day (7-17)

Post  goofygramma on Tue Jul 28, 2009 6:43 am

The first issue of The Farmer's Almanac was published in 1792 during George Washington's second term as president. It sold 3,000 copies and cost about nine cents. Since then, it has come out once a year with useful information: tide tables for people near the ocean, sunrise tables and planting charts for farmers, recipes for cooks, and weather forecasts for everybody.
