In the June/July 2024 issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Donut Beat All” (on newsstands May 14), I sang the praises of lifetime flowers and led you here to my journal for a chance to win your very own MaryJanecreated fakeflower bouquet. Just take a look at the photos of the flower bouquets below and guess “real” or “fake” for each one before September 1, 2024. I’ll toss the names of those who guess all eight correctly in a hat and pull out a winner, who will receive one of my yearround, lifetime flowerpower bouquets. Flowers can be fake, but the joy and smiles they bring are real.

Buy props used in MaryJane’s books and magazine!
5% of profits will benefit www.firstbook.org, a nonprofit that provides new books to children from lowincome families throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Here’s how:
MaryJane will post a photo and a description of a prop and its cost along with a few details as to its condition here: https://shop.maryjanesfarm.org/MaryJanesCurations. It’s a playful way to be the new owner of a little bit of farm herstory.

I just have to say that I am so grateful to have found your journal online! I lived in Potlatch, ID for 14 years (so I knew of your farm) but moved back “home” to MO in 2011, without ever having a chance to visit your farm. I just saw your magazine while standing in line at the store yesterday and had an overwhelming feeling of finding myself extremely homesick for the Palouse. Reading your articles and stories have brought me home (away from home)… even if it IS only through the Internet, I thank you.
Thank you for sharing the importance of home–not where it is but the place where it lives in your heart. “Home is the nicest word there is.” Laura Ingalls Wilder
