For those of you who couldn’t tune into the show, here are my tips for glamping.
Buy props used in MaryJane’s books and magazine!
All proceeds (minus shipping and packing) will benefit www.firstbook.org, a non-profit that provides new books to children from low-income families throughout the U.S. and Canada.
MaryJane will post a photo of the prop and its cost here along with a few details as to its condition. The first person to call the farm and talk with Brian, 208-882-6819, becomes the new owner of a little bit of herstory. Shipping will be either USPS or UPS, our choice. No returns.
That was pretty neat, congratulations MaryJane. Your banana splits look yummy. I love Hallmark (their cards, keepsakes & their movies!).
Switching gears a little bit here but do you write about (or have you written) anything pertaining to your earliest experiences with outdoor foraging, napping & basic survival skills? Before your Glamping days began & new business? What about during the years you worked out in the woods?
I’m following a train of thought here that may seem convoluted & long but I have an idea?…
Have you seen my first and second books? My Ideabook and my Outpost book??????? All about that. But do tell me your idea!
No, I haven’t read them yet but just did a search & see both books received excellent reviews. So I promise I will read them after I finish the book I am currently reading which is set in the early 1800’s; non-fiction & loaded with important but extremely detailed footnotes.
As an example: Many things are mentioned in the book I’m presently reading that I’d never heard of before about soil conditioning etc. And again, how surprised & terribly saddened we were (especially my husband) after watching a movie (supposedly true story~which makes it even worse) where an affable, intelligent & financially sound young man decided to quit college & hike across the USA & beyond. The young man went on & carried us through his engaging metamorphosis while traveling, only to be snuffed out by an appetizing Sweet Pea in the end! Why? Why don’t birds & animals get sick from eating Sweet Peas? Is there a secret that desperately hungry hikers should know about like which mushroom or greens are edible? Did you have an emergency kit filled with kind of like an antidote medicine or something natural to counter act a bad foraging decision? Were you schooled in natural medicines for common & uncommon aliments, bites or stings?
Believe we may be making things too complicated & expensive now days. Hoping more things can be remedied with natural ingredients & more things made with materials on hand?
I didn’t go into great detail in my books about the foraging I did while living in the wild (I ate lots of wild greens and some mushrooms–all of it self-taught through books) but we’re currently working on a special issue of our magazine in conjunction with Mtn. Rose Herbs that will have a lot of detail about natural remedies, etc. It will come out next spring; so stay tuned for that.
Thank you so much for providing us a link to your Hallmark show! It was wonderful to be able to see you and all the fun you had doing this. Congratulations!!
MaryJane- You are a natural wherever you share your ideas! Thanks for sharing your segment here.
