When I was a kid the Farmer's Almanac was always on the kitchen table. Next to the Holy Bible it was the most important book in the house, and it seemed like Granny and my great aunt and uncle salivated when they knew that the next years almanac would be out soon. In addition to the actual almanac there was also a calender on the wall that came from a local pharmacy that was in essence a Farmer's Almanac in a calender form (I still use the same pharmacy, but alas no more almanac style calenders). All the planting was done in accordance with the almanac, as well as breeding of animals and planning of hunting and fishing trips.
Back then the almanac was always free, but nowdays they cost as much as a paperback. It's a shame.
