Volume IV of Vermont Almanac is published

 

The fourth edition of Vermont Almanac has been published and shipped to bookstores before the holidays. The book features all new stories about and by Vermont farmers, writers, loggers, artists, scientists, poets, thinkers, and doers. More than 50 Vermonters contributed stories to Volume IV. 

Remember the Christmas storm last December? The freaky warm January that was 12 degrees above the 20th century mean? The severe May frost that decimated apple crops, the Canadian smoke in June, the epic floods in July and August? The book provides a record of and a context for the crazy weather.

In Volume IV you’ll also learn how to make paper snowdrops, compensate in a recipe for various-sized eggs, and about a foolproof way to kill potato beetles in the garden.
