Mother Earth News has always been a good magazine that people tended to ignore for the wrong reasons. It has always had plenty to offer to people who were willing to get their hands dirty. When I’m looking for obscure poultry information on the Web, I often find a thorough article in Mother Earth News. Maybe the ink is barely dry, maybe it’s thirty years old, doesn’t matter. Country living is not well-anchored in time, anyway.
My parents had a subscription, and so do I. It’s worth checking out. They do cool things like nutritional testing of free-range eggs (including my eggs, which tested out very well, thank you.)
There’s plenty of practical, hands-on stuff that can either be cut out and pasted down or provide food for thought.
My biggest beef is the pop-up ads on the Web site. Geez, Louise! They’re not just annoying, they’re positively hostile. Please, Mother, get rid of them!
