The Farmer's Almanac has been around for a few hundred years, providing farmers with information about the optimal time to plant their crops and the weather patterns they can expect in the coming months. But where did this invaluable resource come from? According to legend, The Farmer's Almanac was created by Benjamin Franklin. In 1758, Franklin was living in Philadelphia and working as a printer. One day, he came across an almanac published in England. He was so impressed by the content that he decided to create his version for farmers in the Colonies. The first edition of The Farmer's Almanac came in 1792, and it quickly became popular among farmers looking for guidance on when to plant their crops and what kind of weather to expect. Over the years, The Old Farmer's Almanac has continued to be a trusted resource for farmers and other people looking for information about the weather.
