Country Wisdom Almanac : 373 Tips, Crafts, Home Improvements, Recipes, and Homemade Remedies Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A follow-up to Black Dog's bestselling Country Wisdom and Know-How, the Country Wisdom Almanac provides hundreds of ideas and methods for living the good and simple life, plus information on weather, gardening, buying produce and cooking by season, holidays, frost dates, moon phases, and more.

Divided into the four seasons and then organized into 373 individual tips, the Country Wisdom Almanac presents a wide variety of ways to live a simpler, more self-sustained life year round.

Each season offers home-improvement ideas (wallpaper a room in the Fall or build a stone wall in the Spring), crafts (create gorgeous homemade decorations for Christmas, Halloween, or the Fourth of July), recipes (use seasonal produce to create fresh, healthy meals), gardening advice (what and when to plant in order to get the maximum results from your land), and more.

Also included is year-round advice on caring for pets, creating your own health and beauty remedies, canning and preserving food, and more.

Each season opens with a list of holidays and a guide to in-season produce.

Appendices cover average weather by city and month, frost dates, and moon phases.
