Our Forums Have Closed

Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Oh suss..

It's just peoples real name. It's taken all of us some time to figure out who is who.

Where have you been hiding anyway?

To each there own I guess..

Those of us that were here when the old forum format was the norm are the ones who moved over. The old one was so much more user friendly and had so many more features than this one has.

Most find this format cumbersome with no features. A lot of members quit posting after the switch and now are reappearing on Facebook. That is one of the reasons you may not recognize some. I still come here. Not sure how many others are lurking about ;)

Yeh - know about facebook

Hi Elsie - its nice to know you are still around.

I always get dozens of ads and emails after being on facebook so that's why I don't go there very often.


This will be my 1st time planting potatoes.
I am in North Carolina , zone 8, I will be using metal rings,(like tomato rings with some fencing. dirt mixed potting soil) and hay. I hope it works good limited space with 6-7 hrs of sun,mostly shade. Wish me luck! TY! All tips are welcomed!
