Greenhorns 2013 Farmers Almanac

Download these audio tracks for listening in the car or truck, and in the greenhouse. Consider recording lectures and songs for others for next year’s New Farmer’s Audio Almanac. Email them to Almanac@thegreenhorns.net. If you are still unfamiliar with the audio capacities of your smartphone, ask your smart 15 year old cousin to help you access Stitcher and Heritage Radio Network lectures on your smartphone.
