STASH BACK | The Farmer's Almanac

STASH BACK | The Farmer's Almanac


I remember pouring over The Farmer's Almanac at my grandparent's house as a child. They were farmers and ranchers and my grandfather, as I recall, did use it as a guide, if for nothing else then for fishing.

So I was pretty tickled to see the almanac online including my favorite part - the best days calendar. And you don't have to be working livestock or planting corn to get some use out of it. 

All of these things are based on the waxing and waning of the moon. 

Speaking of the moon, we are quickly spinning toward the longest day of the year. Also considered as the first day of summer. Known as summer solstice which roughly translates as sun + stop from Latin. This is the day that the sun sits patiently at its northernmost point in the Tropic of Cancer before it switches directions and begins heading south again toward shorter days.

To find out how many hours of daylight you might have, visit The Farmer's Almanac and check out their sunrise | sunset calculator.

This year the summer solstice and the full moon falls on the same day. This is considered to be a rare event which hasn't occurred for 70 years.
