    Need recommendation for a magazine subscription (non-quilting)

    I am looking for a good magazine to give to a family member as a Christmas gift. I want something in the area of gardening, small animal care, how to build things (i.e., decks, sheds), home care. I looked at a bookstore recently and found Mother Earth News and thought that might be a good one. Does anyone subscribe to that or have others to recommend?

    Thanks.

    Jill

    A good magazine for gardeners who also love birds is Birds N Blooms. We love it. Have subscribed for years.

    I agree with Joset,
    Mother Earth and Hobby Farms are always an interesting read

    Thanks for your help. I'd never heard of Hobby Farms and so I checked out their website. I think this one is a really good fit for my gift. I knew I could count on fellow quilters to help me!

    We subscribe to Mother Earth News, great magazine for just what you need. Urban Farm is a newer magazine and that's also very good.

    I've taken Garden Gate for years. It has nice pictures, good information and no advertisements.

    I subscribed to Countryside magazine for years. I don't know if it is still being published. It's a fascinating magazine for gardening, homesteading, small farm animals, food prep, small building, and other.


    Yes! It's still being published! I am renewing my subscription! Thanks for asking, I forgot how much I really liked this magazine. http://www.countrysidemag.com/

    I love Mary Jane's Farm, have subscribed to it since it came out about 5 years ago:

    http://www.magazineline.com/magazine...FQ4EnQodGEsAWw

    I refuse to purchase most magazines anymore because they are pages full of drug ads. I'm not paying
    for a magazine with even one pharmaceutical ad. Mary Jane's ads are related to life. I also like the Reiman
    publications of which birds in bloom is one.

    Have you tried Reiman Publiciations they have many interesting magazines.......one being Birds N Blooms but also have a good variety. Reminisce is another of their magazines which covers stories by readers from the 1940's on....
    very interesting and takes one on a life's journey.
