If you go to the right places in Minnesota we have wild blueberries, much better than the commercial kind. I can't wait to try the recipe. Thanks Mary Jane.

2/8/2015 (Meg) You know the old saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Well, what if life gave you lots of snow instead? You’d make a snowman, of course, or better yet, how about a giant sea turtle? http://bit.ly/1DtQzND

That’s a good thing—a great thing—to be. But, what does it mean? I’ll tell you on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1vdNFFJ

2/10/2015(MBA Jane) For this week’s Outpost/Pampered Pets Beginner Level Merit Badge, I was inspired by my new pooch, Mr. Darcy. A lovely (and loving) black Labradoodle, Mr. Darcy was having some joint problems, and some skin problems. Also, he has a flatulence issue that’s eye-watering, to say the least.

While I had made a commitment to myself to read food labels, watch my health and diet, switch to organic living, and take my supplements, I hadn’t actually applied my knowledge to my four-legged friends yet.

Time for that to change … http://bit.ly/1KF6OJN

2/11/2015 (Meg) I love the delight on my girls’ faces when they wake up to find themselves facing the pinnacle of childhood freedom: the snow day.

They’ve been hoping for one with each snow we’ve had. I’ve never known a kid who didn’t love a snow day. And that got me wondering about snow days of yore … http://bit.ly/1AcgZUx

2/12/2015 If you’re a Raising Jane regular, you’ll remember that my magazine designer, Carol, has a new hobby: junk sculptures. Carol’s creations are little, anywhere from an inch to a foot high, keeping them small enough to glue together. But look what she discovered while trolling for inspiration on Pinterest.

There’s a video of this in action on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1DlLhTY

2/14/2015 Close your eyes and imagine the scent of spring rain …

Can you smell the moisture, unfolding leaves, and rich dampness of the awakening earth?

MIT researchers who study the ephemeral science of this singular scent have just determined how petrichor (the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil) is produced. There is a 1/250 speed video of this phenomenon on Raising Jane. Check it out: http://bit.ly/1yChPTy

2/15/2015 If you have a name like mine that ends in “s,” you’ve probably wondered, worried, and even belabored about making it possessive …

Is it Ms. Butters’s farm?

or Ms. Butters’ Farmgirl Sisterhood? (Shameless plug.)

And if you’ve looked for advice, you’ve probably found conflicting information, leaving you baffled, bewildered, and mystified. I’ve got you covered on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1zWhG2y

2/17/2015 If you know me at all, you know I have a penchant for hexagons. The hexagon, a shape that speaks the zen of the busy beehive or the wired manors of chickens (the oldest domesticated animal on Earth), symbolizes the unity and structure of the farmgirl life—a framework for the proper order of things, a pattern for life. In unwritten feminine language, it is a standard for farmgirls, or for that matter, the ordinary honeybee or the hen, rank and file workers that move the work along. It says that all things are to be done decently and in order, and that small things add up.

Add that to the latest in TV treats, Treehouse Masters, and you’ll come up with a recipe for the perfect getaway, honeybee. There is a video tour on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1ElnUZi

2/18/2015 Why did the chicken cross the … world???

Yes, you read that right.

Chickens are not only the oldest domesticated animal on Earth, they’re also the animal that has been most crucial to the spread of civilization across the globe, according to science writer Andrew Lawler, author of Why Did the Chicken Cross the World? The Epic Saga of the Bird that Powers Civilization. More on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1ER6HXJ

2/19/2015 Iceland was named as the country with the smallest gender gap between men and women for the sixth year in a row in late 2014. The Global Gender Gap Index (GGGI), put together by the World Economic Forum, measures gaps between men and women in four areas: political empowerment; educational attainment; economic participation and opportunity; and health and survival. The U.S. ranked 20th.
If you’ll recall, Farmgirl Sister of the Year, Winnie Nielsen (Sister #3109, aka Red Tractor Girl) recently made a stop in Iceland, so I thought I’d share a few more of her photos and read up on Iceland … http://bit.ly/1zqSL3e

2/21/2015 In the Dec/Jan issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Home for the Holidays,” we taught you how to make “magic pillowcases.”

Now, you can win a set of the pillowcases featured in that article, made from my Bee My Honey fabric collection. The body fabric is my “Colony Hum” print, the cuff fabric is the “Honey” pattern in “Gold” color, and the trim fabric is “Multi” in “Grey.” The giveaway includes two standard-size pillowcases and a pretty, pinked-edged poinsettia bow made from another of my collection’s patterns.

You can enter to win on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1DEs1mu

2/22/2015 Why does Swiss cheese have holes?
Here’s a short video that answers that question—the most oft-asked cheese question on the Internet—and also tells us that the USDA regulates the sizes of those holes (who knew?)!

2/23/2015 I’m afflated.

This enchanting scene, painted over a century ago by a gent named Ludwig Knauss, instantly leaves me feeling afflated to begin planning for planting and picking flowers, lots and lots of flowers.

So, what’s afflated mean? http://bit.ly/1BHgTEK

2/24/2015 Imagine going to an antique store and purchasing a box of old photographs, then spending the next 50 years trying to figure out who the photographer and the people depicted in the photographs were.

Douglas Keister, photographer and author of 42 critically acclaimed books, did just that.

Doug has made a 25-minute video, Shadows on Glass, about his discoveries that shows many of the photographs, fills in the blanks about their origins, and paints a fascinating picture of the lives of the African American community in Lincoln 100 years ago. The video is on Raising Jane: http://bit.ly/1vwaSIF
