FireFighterEMT mentiond Mother Earth News and I got me to thinking.
While I don;t subscribe to any gardening Magazines, I find myself in the News Stand section of the Grocery whenever I go to the store for or with my wife.
The Magazine that has followed me home for the past 3 months is Hobby Farms.
And I have been tempted to check out Mother Earth News and see if it is what I remember from yrs ago.
Maybe we could get this to become a rolling library that the mods could sticky so we have it for reference?

I subscribe to Mother Earth News. It is not the same as I remembered, but I like it. My favorite magazine at the moment is Backwoods Home. It is a very nice magazine which contains many self reliance articles. It has a broad spectrum of material that interests me.

Gardening is the practice of growing plants. Ornamental plants are normally grown for their flowers, leaves, general appearance, or for their dyes. Useful plants grown for human consumption (vegetables, fruits, herbs and leafy vegetables) or medical purposes. A gardener is a person who practices gardening.
