What do you resolve to do?

“A new year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.” –Anonymous

Take a look at our tips on how to hold yourself accountable to your new year’s resolution(s) and break that bad habit of forgetting after a couple weeks. Keeping it simple and specific are two of our many tips on how to achieve success!

Resolution-ary Recipes

After the holidays have passed, you start to regret all of the fudge, cookies, pies, and other indulgences that you enjoyed. It is no wonder that statistics show that close to 40 percent of us who make New Year’s resolutions will rate losing weight and eating healthier as top priorities. We’ve compiled a few healthy recipes to get you started!    

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Seed catalogs start arriving!

Here at the Almanac, we love to cozy up with some good garden seed catalogues, especially in the winter months when we start planning for the upcoming gardening season. Check out this month’s issue to read our tips on ordering seeds!
