First bugles go missing off the grocery shelves and now Harrowsmith. I loved that magazine. I have issues of it dating back to the 80’s. I now have issues with it disappearing off the magazine racks and more importantly – as a devoted subscriber – my mailbox. There is very little about its demise to be found. I miss it. The only bright light is a new magazine based only a few stone throws from my own backyard in the community of Beaverlodge Alberta. Named Rural Roots it covers history and horticulture in Western Canada. A recent issue had a great article on cheese making – my kind of magazine! With only a few issues under its belt it is hard to say where it will all lead but its eastern cousin started out the same way – in the kitchen of a person passionate about living off the land. Check them out at http://www.heritagefarm.ca They even offer some non GMO heirloom seeds! I am pleased to be among the newest subscribers to Rural Roots and applaud their efforts…but I still miss Harrowsmith.
