    I love this pillow

  2. Zoe A. Siperly says:

    I have a blue jean quilt my mother made and this pillow would go with it perfectly. Mary Jane Farms and the Glampers have made my heart full of joy and sisterhood!!

  3. It is true that “farmgirl is a condition of the heart”… for over a decade I’ve been longing to, dreaming of, and working towards moving full time to a beloved patch of rural heaven we own. It was hard enough to get it, it’s hard enough to take good care of it on a weekend-and-holiday-only occassion. And it’s CRAZY HARD to leave it each Sunday to go back to our crowded town and wonder how we’ll ever manage to make this transition. But no one can take our farm out of my heart!!!! And with my memory of every excellent moment spent there over the past decade and my imagination of what will be when my dream finally comes true, I remain a true farmgirl, even in the “stuck” places!

  4. Catherine A Grimes says:

    Worth it. It’s worth all of it. Be it day dreaming or planning next years garden while caring for a current crop. The pain is worth it.

    My main outfit are jeans, T-shirt’s and flannel shirts. I gave up dresses except for summer jumpers I made when I left working in an office. This would be so perfect in my home. Farmgirl is in my DNA and thank goodness, now I can say it’s in my grown children’s DNA! both have farms. My grandmother always said I was born in the wrong century and I believe it.

  6. Ally Gledhill says:

    Farmgirl is a condition of the heart because no matter where I am in life, whether it’s a five acre farm or tiny duplex without a yard, I know that the lessons I’ve learned from this community will stick with me. I may not have the space to do everything I want, Farmgirls are clever and I can choose to live that farmgirl life.

  7. Lorraine Hess says:

    Farmgirl is definitely a condition of the heart. I spent most of my life living in the country. Even though I now live in a small town that is rapidly growing larger I still have a good size garden we eat and preserve from and I still do a lot of crafting. Some day I would like to get back to the country but, for now, I make my escape in my camper.

  8. Carolyn Sanelli says:

    Farmgirl is a condition of the heart. I am a city girl by birth but I love to create whether it is growing my herbs, cooking a homecooked meal or creating my own gifts for family members. So would you consider me a farmgirl at heart?

  9. Kay A. Jones says:

    While reading my MaryJaneFarm magazine, I am back in my childhood with my country aunt, Aunt May. She had chickens, nursed an occasional stray raccoon, raised rhubarb, and had the most beautiful peonies on earth that would grace my mother’s dining room table. I have pictures of me as a toddler followed by her cats. I believe that is why I love cats today. My garden at my farmhouse stye home in Sunfield will have rhubarb. I have planted peonies. I can hardly wait to make stewed rhubarb and have peonies grace my dining room table in my forever home in Sunfield. God is good. Be blessed, Mary Jane.

  10. Rose Mason says:

    Sometimes daily life can become too repetitive and we find a danger of not celebrating our joy in the little things we do. The “farmgirl” attitude is the reminder to our hearts of not only who we are but to live inspired.

  11. Shelly D says:

    The magazine articles remind me of my childhood on the farm. And I have a blue jean quilt from my grandmother. This would look wonderful.

    Also want to make another quilt out of my grandfather’s jeans. I think I’ll use the same pattern.

  12. Linda Bowlby says:

    As a retired farmer’s wife and the daughter of a farmer’s daughter, I love the motivation and encouragement Mary Janes Farm brings to women of all ages, backgrounds and locations. I especially love the articles and features on lost and forgotten skills.

  13. Barbara Mangrum says:

    “Farmgirl is a condition of the heart” statement is so true. Farmgirl definitely is a girl whose heart is all about simplicity, creativity, and passion of all things on the farm growing and continuing traditions throughout the years.

  14. Ardis Boll says:

    Living in “Rural” Idaho and being a “Farm Girl” is an invaluable life; more so now that “isolation” is so important to all of us. I love Mary Jane’s Farm magazine and all she exemplifies. I have all my subscriptions saved and having retired in my first year I am looking forward to many more years of Farm Girl Attitude!

  15. Susan Pennala says:

    I think if we go back far enough, we would all find farmgirls in our lineage. Not only is it a condition of our hearts, it’s imprinted in our DNA!

  16. Dorothy J. Shaulis says:

    I live in a rural area surrounded by farmland. Farm machinery going up and down our road here are a common occurrence, as well as Amish buggies. I love the fresh, clean country air, even when they spread manure! I discovered Mary Jane’s Farm Magazine at our local quilt/sewing shop and have subscribed to it. I look forward to all the stories, articles and pictures.

  17. Lora Weber says:

    I’ve made many baby quilts for gifts. And a few larger ones too. Love to see different ideas. Love this magazine too. Im all about denim everything.

  18. Tammy Slifer says:

    That saying just means “down to earth”, we came from the earth to take care of the Earth. It is the best way to stay healthy in so many ways!! Also helps us to not forget were we came from!!! Its the roots that keep us grounded. I was lucky enough to have these kind of roots!!

  19. Nancy Frazier says:

    Farm girl is a condition of the heart means simply that. No matter your “place in life”, the type person that you are is in the heart.

  20. Maureen Justice says:

    Has made me relish the simple things and reminds me of when I was a young girl in the farm

  21. Andrea E. says:

    Farm girl is a condition of the heart- including whatever makes your heart happy! Holding onto my farm heritage whether I’m hard working outside or at the hospital- homemaking is always where my heart is!

  22. Robin D. says:

    I love the idea that regardless of where you are in the world – growing up in a small fishing village in Canada, slogging through a Master’s degree in England, teaching English in remote northern Pakistan or learning to raise a small boy on a wheat farm in Washington – a ‘farmgirl condition of the heart’ travels with you.

  23. Bev Read says:

    Denim is dear to my heart. My Mom who has been gone for 34 yrs. She wore her first pair of denim underneath a button-down skirt, as women were not allowed to even wear pants, in our town scandalous! But she wore them with pride!!! She was the heart of our family and loved red roses. I love denim too and wear them on most days. I still laugh and smile when I think of my mom, breaking the denim rules!!!

  24. Lisakay Mindel says:

    I am holding this magazine in my hand because I purchased it to get the subscription card inside. My mom LOVES your magazine so I am giving her a subscription for Mother’s Day. Looking through Mary Jane’s farm I can see why and plan on getting a subscription for myself as well. I can’t wait to make the pickled radishes from my garden and to patch the jeans I am currently wearing using the techniques in this issue. I love my mom and couldn’t think of a better gift! Thank you.

  25. Denva Corff says:

    means…to enjoy handmade, homegrown, simple things….appreciate all that God has created and find happiness in helping and sharing those in need.

  26. Karen D. Chandler says:

    I love and look forward to each new issue. It’s total quality time for just me, away from all the noise and responsibilities that I normally have. The ideas and creations and recipes are great. Just in general fun to read something interesting and important, yet soo fun to read. Thanks Mary Jane, I will be subscribing forever.

  27. MS Barb says:

    I was raised in a metropolis area, but love in the country now, and LOVE it!

  28. Ann Senge says:

    A farm girl is a condition of the heart. Even though I live on a lake, my gardening is done without pesticides, and nothing but natural fertilizer. No chemicals for my organic crops. I even make my canning labels that state from Murray Lake Gardens. If I could I’d have chickens but my lake association would not allow it. Boo..

  29. Joyce Gardner says:

    Always look forward to my next copy of your magazine. I do a lot of gardening. Can always use new ideas

  30. Amy Bassett says:

    I used to consider myself a city girl until our family bought a homestead in the countryside of Connecticut. Our happy farmhouse (300 years young!) is surrounded by rambling stone walls as we have added many animals to our farm: alpacas, beehives, chickens, and in the summertime pigs. I love being a farm girl! My soul is fed by the life-giving nature all around!

  31. winnie Jackson says:

    Love this pillow out of different shades of blue. This pillow would be welcomed with a time that we are all dealing with this awful virus keeping us from others we love and care for. It would bring me such great comfort in my life cuddling up with it. Thank you for this fantastic contest! All be well and safe, Winniei 🙂

  32. Joyce Johnsonce Johnson says:

    No matter what is going on in my life I just remember I’m a farm girl st heart.

  33. Janice Hardin says:

    As I consider this, it reminds me of my townie raised daughter, who now thrives on an Ohio farm with her family where they raise otganic grown produce She absolutely loves farm life and it takes me back to visiting my grandparents on that Oklahoma farm every summer. Thank for this delightful re-visit.

  34. Katie weekley says:

    This would be for my mom she’s been a fan of yours since the beginning

  35. Linda Bennet says:

    It’s a condition of the heart because it’s everything I love: flowers, gardens, food and fashions!

  36. Deloris Bennett says:

    “Condition of the Heart” – I am blessed to have always lived in a rural area. When I was a little girl we had pigs, chickens and turkeys. I was a little afraid of all three. I now live about 1/4 mile beyond that house (further into the hollow) and have my own chickens. I’m not an official farm girl, but I’ve been a farm girl at heart for quite a while. My garden has just been plowed and I’m anxious to get the planting started. I like to glam up my vegetable garden with flowers too (and a picnic table with a bench).
