MaryJane's Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook: For the Farmgirl in All of Us

MaryJane's Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook: For the Farmgirl in All of UsI loved this book so much that I just purchased it from This is a nice mixture of reminisce, encouragement, how to live sustainably and great pictures One of the things I like about this book and Mary Jane s magazine is the no guilt, non political approach to our environment I enjoy repurposing and doing things to not damage the environment but I hate the media s preaching and hearing the phrase go green The media and government have inundated our world with catch phrases and pressure to be green I wonder if the response wouldn t be better if people would encourage quietly like Mary Jane and quit the preaching. One of my all time favorite books The photography is gorgeous This is a beautiful book to just look at but the ideas and crafts in it are also wonderful This book really made me a MaryJane fan I own all her books but this one is my favorite When a book is sold with lots of photos I always rate them compared to MaryJane s books. I do love this book Great pictures, and so many old time things that remind me of my childhood Actually contains the directions for tiddly winks with buttons and how to make those stilts with tin cans Some recipes, great tips for farmstead parties and stories short ones about her life. I am pretty sure I read this the day I brought it home The whole thing All I can say is just looking at the pictures and then reading the stories made me remember how strongly I desire to find myself on a small farm This woman has a little bit of how to for everything.The farmgirl in myself came out that is for sure I loved this book It inspired and re energized my diy tendencies and encouraged me to get back to of a self sufficient mindset I would read a little, hop up and go start something like ordering an organic sourdough starter , checking on my kombucha, mulching the garden, etc and then read a little till I got inspired to work on something else It had much the same effect as did Carla Emery s Encyclopedia of Country Living did some 20 years ago, but this book is has much eye candy though not as many recipes.The writing is engaging storytelling and the photography is beautiful I kept looking to see if I recognized any locations from my visits to Moscow, Idaho, but didn t, other than the rolling Palouse wheatfields Beautiful book, beautiful ideas. I think I have read every word in this book It s inspirational, and chock full of wonderful things to do. I picked this up thinking it was going to have a great amount of how to and self reliance stuff in it, but it s mostly memoir and photos of cute farm things with a little bit of the rest mixed in The book is not in a format that makes it easy to skip to the parts I was hoping to find here I eventually gave up on it. What a delightful compendium I enjoyed her narrative clips I enjoyed the layout and the photographs I enjoyed the many ideas and their presentation There are recipe sections.There is a gardening section.There is a stitching section.There is a make it section for wood , metal and fiber.There is an outpost section including wall tent living and having outdoor experiences with your children in tow.There is a cleaning up section including laundry, home, and personal care.But that list doesn t begin to evoke all the little discoveries you ll make as you peruse and then use this book Fun fun fun Not particularly useful, but fun Lots of pretty pictures, a few cute ideas, and some nice looking recipes one which I will definitely try Lots of inspiration here, although this isn t the place to get concrete information about how to actually become a farmgirl Don t buy it check it out from the library like I did MaryJane Butters Sense Of Purpose Is As Big As The Idaho Landscape Where Her Organic Farm Is Nestled She Wants Nothing Less Than To Reconnect Us All With The Food We Eat And The Heritage Of Farming That Belongs To All Of Us, And Nothing Than To Empower And Encourage Rural Women Everywhere She Is Cultivating Not Just A Farm But A Philosophy Of Living Body Soul Carpenter, Waitress, Janitor, Upholsterer, Secretary, Milkmaid, Wilderness Ranger, Environmental Activist, Entrepreneur The Founder Of MaryJanesFarm Has Worn Many Hats In Her Day, But None Proudly Than That Of Modern Day Farmgirl Speaking To The Farmgirl In All Of Us, MaryJane Butters Offers A Captivating Introduction To The Organic Lifestyle, Resurrects Forgotten Domestic Arts, And Shares Lessons Gleaned From Her Diverse Background And Two Decades Of Life As An Idaho Farmer Whether You Simply Need Encouragement To Embrace A Authentic, Wholesome Lifestyle Or You Re Looking For Guidance On Building A Greenhouse, Chopping Firewood, Hosting A Town Event, Caring For A Flock Of Chickens, Making Your Own Butter, Growing A Winter Salad, Or Choosing A Water Filter, MaryJane S Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook Is Both An Inspiration And A Practical Road Map For Farmgirls Of All Stripes Dreams Are MaryJane Butters Business, And She Has Always Pursued Them Without Pausing To Consult Conventional Wisdom House Garden MaryJane Butters, A Natural Teacher, Has A Gift For Simplification, And Makes It Seem That Everything She Does Is Easy And Attainable The New Yorker
