This week, we thought we would do a FlashFORWARD edition of our regular Friday posts and give you a preview of The 2014 Old Farmer’s Almanac. The 2014 edition is available everywhere starting September 10, but can be ordered online right now here!
A Look at The 2014 Old Farmer’s Almanac!
• Are you one of those people who could eat pie morning, noon, and night? Chef Ken Haedrich gives us a pie-day menu that includes a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipe!
• Are you among the rising number of homeowners who are replacing the front lawn with an edible vegetable garden? We have a list of tasty and eye-pleasing plants for you, as well as some advice on how to make your edible garden flourish!
• We’ve got a fishing expert sharing the secret of how to hook seven tricky fish: northern pike, walleye, goldeye, brown trout, atlantic salmon, bonefish, and tarpon.
• We answer some common misconceptions about the aurora borealis, aka northern lights, such as whether they appear best in bitter-cold temperatures and whether they extend to, or touch, the ground.
• Superheroes and villains aren’t just in the movies. They’re all around us—in our backyards, gardens, even our houses. The 2014 Old Farmer’s Almanac gives us a look at nature’s avengers.
• Folklore can be a bit crazy, especially the old-fashioned king. For example: Plant cucumbers while you are wearing your pajamas, on the first day of May, before sunrise, and no bugs will eat them.
