Have you read the magazine "Mary Jane's Farm?" If not, you must! I think it is my new favorite magazine. I read somewhere (although I'm not sure who said it, so I can't quote) that Mary Jane's Farm is like Martha Stewart Living with dirt under its fingernails and a clean criminal record. This great magazine touts the benefits of organic living, growing your own food, cooking, making your own things, and finding the joy in every day living. It's fun to look at, and this issue made me wish that my neighbors wouldn't hate it if I put a chicken coop in my backyard (I live in a neighborhood where the neighbors are pretty close. Chickens would not be smiled at).
On the website, you get the opportunity to read various blogs (geared toward country, city, suburban, and rancher Farmer Girls), and most compellingly you can join the Mary Jane's Farmgirl Sisterhood, in which you can earn merit badges and meet other women of similar mentalities with great info, tidbits, and stories to tell.
Barnes and Noble carries "Mary Jane's Farm." Check it out. I can almost guarantee that you will be happy that you did!
