It’s that time of the year again! Come autumn we eagerly wait for the release of the Old Farmer’s Almanac to see what the up-coming year’s weather forecast might look like. The Almanac’s weather predictions are made up to 18 months in advance, but are traditionally 80 percent accurate nevertheless.

This year, Old Farmer’s Almanac comes with a winter warning: Brrr! “Prepare for a Season of Shivers. This winter will be inundated by positively bone-chilling, below-average temperatures across most of the United States.” says Janice Stillman, the editor.

For 230 years, the Almanac has apparently been helping readers get ready for winter’s worst. However, in addition to its weather forecasts, the Almanac is also known for being informative, with a delightful degree of humor. Features include recipes that make the most of the season, along with award-winning dishes and desserts that use five or fewer ingredients. The art and science of animal tracking, plus how to read Mother Nature’s signs to choose a fishing spot. As well as, reports from small farmers (like ours – Resendiz Brothers Protea Growers), including how they fared during 2020 and continue to diversify for the future.

There are also monthly calendars strewed with humor and wisdom, astronomical timetables, planting guides, and tads of valuable advice that continue The Old Farmer’s Almanac’s long-standing traditions.

The Nature of Giving
