She could have been an editor anywhere, but Janice Stillman chose the oldest publication in America. The Old Farmer's Almanac was first published in 1792 and it hasn't missed a year since. When she took over in 2000, Janice became the annual book's first female editor. 

Janice explains how George Washington helped get off the annual book off the ground and why it is still relevant to so many people still today. There are all sorts of interesting tidbits to ingest, including tips on how to live to be 100 years old.

Janice helps relieve stress by pointing to seven things we don't need to worry about anymore, and she explains why the book became far more than just a guide on when to put your plants into the ground.

    I loved learning more about the Farmer's Almanac from Janice. Obviously I'd heard of the publication but I knew little about it. Thanks Janice!
