The Old Farmer’s Almanac has always included puzzles to amuse the mind—from riddles to math teasers.
Here are the answers to our featured puzzles:
1. Soon as I’m made, I’m sought with care, for one whole year consulted. That time elapsed, I’m thrown aside, neglected and insulted. ANSWER: An Almanac!
2. Often we are covered with wisdom and wit, and oft with a cloth where the dinner guests sit; In beauty around you and over your head, we are countless, though numbered when bound to be read. ANSWER: Leaves!
