Man Oh Day! Starting a new year has never been so welcome. Although I’m writing this on the Solstice, in magazine-land, we are now in January, and have been since the beginning of November! We all know that 2021 is going to be a rough year, but there is the sense that we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. 2020 was a long, long, long year.
Enough of that! We have a wonderful issue to start this year. Lots of recipes, remedies and garden ideas wait inside these pages.
You can get a SINGLE COPY or SUBSCRIBE for a year. Subscriptions come with and addition 6 “Essential Extras” which are smaller things that may be a handful of great pages, a video, puzzles – whatever we have – and you’ll hear from us every month; 6 magazines and 6 Essential Extras (exclusive for subscribers only).
We are still shipping for the time being, but the mail service has really been hobbled. So… if you need to be sure your gift arrives, consider sending a subscription!
