DW, Try this one. (link below)

You will probably want to look at the Family section.

Me I like the other features section. It has All Around the Farm that are things that the readers send in that they have built at the farm to do chores, etc. (If you click on the colored "All Around the Farm" it will link you to one of the collections published in Mid-Feb.)

Hope you like it,

DW have you actually seen this magazine? Do you think it's worth having a look at?

Magpie, I don't subscribe to it but have seen it at my uncle's house. It was great, and I think most here would enjoy it. Lots of good useful info.

Speaking of publications, I just got home from an auction where I bought a bunch of USDA Farmer's Bulletins published in the 20's, 30's and 40's. Here are some titles and excerpts:

Farm Horseshoeing (July/27) - "The advent of hard-surfaced roads and motor vehicles has been accompanied, in many communities, with a transformation of our countryside, in which the village blacksmith has gradually been supplanted by gas stations and garages, so that the problem of shoeing horses is a serious one in many communities."

Broomcorn Growing and Handling (Sept/30) -"The increasing use of vacuum cleaners, dust mops, carpet sweepers, push brooms, and brushes and brooms made from tropical fibers has caused broomcorn brooms to be used less and less"

The Preservative Treatment of Farm Timbers (Dec/28) - "Mercuric chloride is a white powder which makes it a very effective wood preservative when dissolved in water... Because it is a deadly poison and is corrosive to iron and steel, mercuric chloride can not be recommended for general use."

Ginseng Culture (Oct/28) - "The plant has little domestic value except for the exploitation of amateur cultivators and depends on a distant oriental market (China) for its standing as a commodity."

Drug Plants Under Cultivation (Apr/22) - "The drug cannabis ... consists of the dried flowering tops of the female plants...The market price in June, 1920, for tested (U.S.P) domestic cannabis was 30 to 35 cents; for untested, 20 to 25 cents a pound."

Victory Gardens (Jan/43) - "In times of war the country's food supply for civilians may be smaller even though total production is greatly increased...There is now real need for civilians to relieve the burden on commercial food sources, transportation, and preservation by growing all food that is practical at home and preserving, storing, and using it over as much of the year as possible."
