I get Mother Earth News and Countryside magazine. I love them both, but Countryside is my favorite. I've never heard of Grit, I will have to check it out.

I might have to make an effort to find that one. I had never heard of it.

I subscribe to Urban Farm magazine (from the people that do Hobby Farms magazine) and I love it. Often other farm/garden magazine don't really offer anything I can use as a city dweller. It's a nice magazine. I recommend giving it a look.

I like the magazine Heirloom (Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co magazine). There's a lot of great articles that are helpful! I also subscribe to Organic Gardening! I love that one!

I loved Grit: when I was little my Grandma received it. I always read it when she gave it to my Mom when she was done with it. Never heard of Mary Jane's Farm. Will have to check that one out.

Maria has a free newsletter and Facebook page. I believe she is the granddaughter of Bob Rodale and the CEO of the publishing company. You can check out her blogs about organic gardening here. http://www.mariasfarmcountrykitchen.com/ab

I've subscribed to Organic Gardening since 1977 when is was still Organic Gardening and Farming. I don't get as excited about it as I used to, but continue subscribing to support Rodale's efforts in spreading the Organic word. I loved it when Mike McGrath was editor in the 90s, his comments were so funny.

My hubby's parents on the farm always had a subscription to Grit.And don't you dare think about burning any of the old copies either! Have to save every one!
I currently don't get any magazines. I also found I was getting them and not reading them. I have subscribed to some organic gardening magazines in the past, though.

I do not, I grew up on a working ranch in the Ozarks, so we do pretty much as my grandparents taught us when moving to the US from Ireland!

We *always* buy the original Farmer's Almanac, though :)

my SparkPage is friends-only because I'm paranoid and boring, anyway

Hubby and I are bad about getting magazines in the mail and then never reading them. Many years ago we stopped getting any because it was a waste of time and money. But in the last year we have found 2 that we will probably never get rid of and eagerly await their arrival in the mail.

Grit and Mary Janes Farm. Both are organic gardening/farming/etc magazines. Grit has been around a long time. My parents both remember their parents subscribing to it. Have you heard of them? I don't work for either but love them both!

Do you subscribe to any magazines and if so, which ones? Pros/cons?
