Mary Jane's Farm

I have been told that I was born in the wrong century. I love to sew, knit, and do other crafts. I adore gardening and making my own soap. I hate certain big box stores and lots of chemicals. So on that whim I wanted to share a magazine and group I belong too.

Mary Jane's Farm is a awesome magazine on organic country living. Mary Jane Butter's started the magazine and then started a chat room for like minded women to exchange ideas on living a more simple life. What grew out of all that was the the Farm Girl Sisterhood. My mom and I joined the sisterhood for kicks and we are starting our own chapter too.

The sisterhood is like Girl Scouts for grown ups. You even get to earn merit badges! Okay it sounds a little hokey, but it is fun. I earned my first merit badge in "Horse Dreams." It was not difficult to do for me, but it was still fun. I just did the beginner level. I need to get the book “The Soul of a Horse,” by Joe Camp for the next level. I got a little merit badge to sew on my jacket or purse or whatever. Other merit badges include "Know Your Food," "In the Garden," and "knitting."

I won't share all my merit badges on here. Ones that are related to food and gardening will be on my other blog, My Straw Bale Garden . But I really think it is a great group and wanted to share.
