Thanks for your comment. Thanks for your comment. Several decades ago, when this Almanac became a national publication (and ceased being a regional publication), the Farmer's Calendar essays shifted from being seasonal advisories with specific guidance on agriculture and husbandry to seasonal reflections with observations about country life. At about the same time, agriculture and husbandry topics began to be covered in feature articles in the print edition, and now on our Web site, Almanac.com. In all of our media, we endeavor to address the full range of topics that make this Almanac a true almanac—a calendar of the heavens—and to share, encourage, and honor the mission of the founder, Robert B. Thomas. Thanks again for your comments.
