THE 1993 GARDENER'S COMPANION -- KEEPING THE OLD FARMER'S ALMANAC COMPANY

 DUBLIN, N.H., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- After 200 years, you'd think that the editors of "The Old Farmer's Almanac" had just about written the book on everything in the garden. It seems, however, that along the way there may have been an omission or two, like how to keep flowers fresh with soda pop, growing the perfect seedless Paw Paw, how to and what to plant by the light of the silvery moon, and why every kitchen needs its very own Tomato Shark (no aquarium necessary!).
 These and a bushel full of other helpful and fascinating stories, recipes, tips and trivia can be found in the brand new "First Annual Old Farmer's Almanac 1993 Gardener's Companion," now available for $2.95 at newsstands, convenience, grocery and garden shops all across America.
 "Gardener's Companion" editor Georgia Orcutt describes the new publication as a handy how-to and reference guide, ideal for both expert and novice.
 "We've taken time-tested gardening research, mixed in lots of updated information, and blended it with pages of unusual and fascinating tidbits. The result is a helpful reference guide with is not only fun to read, but consistent with popular The Old Farmer's Almanac' style," said Orcutt.
 According to publisher John Pierce, long time loyal readers, as well as an all-new generation of homemakers and gardeners, are clamoring for a steady supply of the reliable wit and wisdom they've come to know and respect from a rich tradition of writers, artists, scientists and even astrologers.
 The premiere issue of the "Gardener's Companion" is divided into several editorial sections including those on fruits, flowers, vegetables, trees and lawns.
 A quick browse through the "Gardener's Companion" will yield a bountiful variety of the factual and fascinating. Take, for example, a story on the race to grow the first 1,000-pound pumpkin (an 800-pounder claims the current record); or how to plant over 30 vegetables by the light of the moon (it really makes a difference).
 Members of the entire family will find something to enjoy in the "First Annual 1993 Gardener's Companion" and, if you manage to work up an appetite while reading, you'll even find the "official" recipe for fried green tomatoes.
