The Old Farmer's Almanac/The Battle Of Charlotte


Wednesday, September 24, 2014

We live in a digital world but The Old Farmer's Almanac survives. In fact, it thrives! For over two hundred years it has predicted long range forecasts, shared recipes and homespun wisdom while providing farming insights. We meet the first female editor of the almanac and hear some predictions in the first half of the program and then, observe the 234th anniversary of the Battle of Charlotte.
