Of course you know you can find prognostications about weather and seasonal suggestions for farmers. But my favorite feature is "Best Days," simply, the best days to do certain things, according to the phase and position of the moon in the Zodiac.
For instance, today is the best day to castrate your farm animals.
It's also the best day to dig a hole, wean, potty train, cut firewood and paint.
If you are trying to grow your hair, there are days for it. Likewise, if you are trying to retard hair growth. Tomorrow and the next day are days to begin diets if you are trying to gain weight. So you may want to rethink the timing of your diet.
I even got married on a day when the moon was right according to the Almanac. And I discovered one should never marry on the day or evening of a waning moon.
I know you are sitting there wondering when would be the best day to kill wild onions and weeds. The Farmer's Almanac knows all.
My husband is fond of telling a story about his grandfather, E. W. One early spring day E.W. rode out to his fields to find that his right-hand man had planted the beans.
"What you doing planting beans today? It's the wrong moon. Those beans aren't gonna come up!"
They cussed and argued and cussed and argued some more and those beans never did come up. They were replanted when the moon was right. And they grew like mad.
So, tell me today what it is you want to do and I'll tell you when to do it. Or you can just look it up for yourself here. You really should own a copy. Everybody should.
