July is Read an Almanac Month!

Friday is July 1. And July is Read an Almanac Month.  I love reading dictionaries and encyclopedias and almanacs.  What about you?

Almanac #1

On the tab for this site is “Old Farmer’s Almanac” but the home page just says Almanac.

I’m typing this post on Sunday June 26.  Per this almanac – Today is Day 177 of 2022.  The word for today is Myrmecophobia.  Do you know what it means? [see end of this post]

This almanac has sections for calendar, gardening, weather, astronomy, food, and an about section.  I could easily spend hours on this website!

Almanac #2

The tab for this site says Farmers’ Almanac and so does the home page.

On this almanac home page are sections for editor’s picks, weather, astronomy, gardening, fishing, food and recipes [mushroom coffee?], and helpful hints.  Today’s helpful hint is – Dry Skin? Add some milk powder to your bathwater.

Do you like reading almanacs?  Let us know in the comments!

[Myrmecophobia means fear of ants.]

My grandfather read the Farmer's almanac every year. He was raised on it.
