An Appalachian farmer’s almanac, “Planting by the Signs” is a valuable resource for the gardener looking for time-honored tips for clearing land and growing vegetables from the people who originally pioneered the art through hard work (and a little bit of luck). In the spirit of the Foxfire Americana Library, this entry also contains a collection of gardening-related folklore, including signs to tell that winter is coming and a guide to planting successfully according to the stars.
Foxfire has brought the philosophy of simple living to hundreds of thousands of readers, teaching creative self-sufficiency and preserving the stories, crafts, and customs of Appalachia. Inspiring and practical, this classic series has become an American institution. In July 2016, Vintage Shorts celebrates Foxfire's 50th Anniversary.
