Farmer’s Almanac Predictions
Specifically, The Old Farmers Almanac founded by Robert B. Thomas and published annually since 1792. The Almanac is released the first Tuesday in September preceding the year on its cover. Considered a reference guide for weather forecasts, gardening and planting charts and basic trends for living.

Heavily used by farmers (hence its name) in the initial 150 years of its existence, to plan the planting and harvesting times for their crops and gardens, in more recent years it has become a quirky fun publication to find recipes, interesting daily trivia and trends. Still offering predictions of frost dates and moon dates, planting guides, recipes with an online presence at www.almanac.com , the Old Farmer’s Almanac also offers solutions to common problems around your home and yard.
