Home Farmer & Country Smallholding
I have been collecting Home Farmer magazine since issue 1 was launched many years ago, I love the variety of articles and what is achievable in your own back garden or window box, it covers everything from growing your own, chickens, livestock, cooking and crafts, I know you can view the magazine online but I do like a real magazine to curl up with on the sofa with a cup of tea, I don't part with my magazines either, I find them a great resource and often go back to older editions.
In the latest edition, there is a good interesting article on James Wong, with a couple of his recipes, Making traditional Ginger Beer and seasonal Foraging.
It was from an early edition of Home Farmer magazine that we got the instructions for building our brick oven.
My second magazine today is Country Smallholding, its not one that I buy all the time just occasionally when something catches my eye, I find the magazine at times heavy reading and it goes into too much technical detail and is not as friendly or doesn't seem to be, Although saying that perhaps they are trying to change there image, as the copy I picked up today seems a bit more on the light hearted side.
The articles that caught my eye today was using curing salts, and Perfect Fencing for the smallholder.
I will settle down this evening and have a good read of both.
Is there any magazines you pick up on a regular basis and if so why.
