I purchased a copy of the August/September MaryJanesFarm magazine, purchased a copy of MaryJane's Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook and a copy of MaryJane's Stitching Room. I'm ready to begin a simpler lifestyle for myself and my family on our small 1/2 acre paradise in Bucks County, PA! Next up, joining the Sisterhood! Grandma used to grow a bountiful garden, raspberry brambles and fruit trees in the same 1/2 acre. I want to bring it back to the way it was, when I was a child. Life has gotten too crazy nowadays. I hope to find many ideas from everyone in the Farmgirl Connection forum. Thank you for sharing your lifestyle with me.

Welcome, Milessa. To live on your grandmother's place and garden where she did has got to be a wonderful experience. Is it the same house? I love old houses.

Looking forward to hearing more as you bring your 1/2 acre back to life.

Welcome Melissa! How exciting that you are living on your Grandmother's little patch of paradise too. I know you will find MaryJane's books full of the great ideas and how-to's for just about any project you wish to being. Please keep us posted on your projects and interests too. Also, please post under the Welcome Wagon topic where other Farmgirls will see that a new member has joined in the fun! Thanks for sharing and I am excited to hear more about what inspires you. We love photos here so please share if you can!! Have a great day.

Welcome Milessa---MaryJanes place is the most fun place to be. Good for you for wanting to bring Gramma's place to how you remember.
As MaryJane says--"Farmgirl is a condition of the heart". So true.
Be happy here

Welcome, Melissa. I am just a couple of counties away, down in rural Southern Chester County. So glad you found us on the farm -- the sisterhood is a wonderful resource for life. Live it how you choose.

Melissa: How lucky of you to be able to live on your grandmother's property. It sounds like you will make it again like a place to remember.

Welcome! That's how I started. Once you have a copy of MaryJane's Ideabook, life will never be the same (for the better)! Enjoy and welcome!
