Tasha, Of course you do! We must be star sisters! If I lived in Minnesota I would be on my way over for tea. However I don't know how you manage in all that snow. I was bartering a month ago with mother nature begging for no more snow here. Maybe we can meet somewheres sunny and warm but until then it is so great to connect with you here.

peaking out of the broom closet. LOL. I'm new to the forum and new to paganism. I am drawn to the appalachian granny woman tradition. with Scottish, Irish, and Cherokee ancestors. I hope to be able to find someone in the area to learn from, but haven't a clue how to go about doing that. LOL.

the besom swap sounds great. I'm not sure how that works since I'm still figuring out the site, but would love to participate. My daughter Deidre introduced me to Wicca when she bought a book on the subject. there was a chapter on hearing the call of the Goddess. I can't tell you how many times in my life I have awakened to the sound of a female voice calling my name, to find no one there. Made me go hmmmmmm. LOL.

I'm sorry if I'm rambling, my brain isn't working too well today(this darned illness I deal with). but I just want to say, I'm happy to meet you all. blessings Phyllis

Blessings Phyllis.:) I'm waiting to see what's next. I think the broom swap is a great idea too. I am not new to Paganism exactly but have always been 'alone' as I have never found anyone in my area to hang out with and learn from. So I guess I am a 'book pagan' I am hoping to learn here too.
Welcome!

Hi Hattah, Love your tag line. took me a long time to learn that. we almost moved up to your area, read everything I could on Maine, but finally decided to come back home to Tn.

I too am kinda a "book pagan" . in this area there aren't very many folks like us I think. It's also not something you advertise here, ya know? Glad to find some folks here that have similar interests.

thanks so much for the welcome. hope to get to know everyone better. blessings Phyllis

Hey Carol! Are you familiar with "Kitchen Witch"? It is a book and for the life of me I can't remember if it is by Raven Silverwolf or Patricia Telesco. Google will bring up a lot of info on being a kitchen witch. I think it is a large part of who I am!

I would so love to be a part of writing a "witchy farm girl" book! There is soooooooo much useful info that could be in it. From cooking tips, blessings and plant info. Like I just got some endangered seed for a plant called "Broom Corn" a grain grown just to make brooms. You know where I am going with this?

Okay Seriously. Being that there is this group of self proclaimed "book pagans." There are others like myself, who have been influenced by other cultures and like to explore traditions, finding the whole "witch" knowledge very interesting and useful. There is lots of valuable information about caring for ourselves, thought of as "witchy" and women miss out, thinking it is something bad or scary. It can be as simple as wives tales that ring true, or herbs/food that are medicinal and heals. I am getting started. . .

If anyone has any "witchy" stories, celebrations, customs or wisdom please pass it on to me because I am so motivated to start this "Witchy Farm Girls" endeavor.

Blessings,
h

Hi, Miss Dana, I love Kitchen Witch, I think it's by Patricia Telesco. My copy is lost in the mess that is my house at the moment. we are remodeling the house and things are scattered everywhere.

I find myself drawn to kitchen witchery, and hedge witchery. thats one reason I mentioned the Granny woman tradition, seems , to me at least, to be a good combination of the two. I am still searching to find where I fit best. that is why I used the 'book pagan' description, I read everything I can get my hands on, and since the only people I know that are interesting in such things are my husband and daughter, I haven't done much in the way of ritual.

I would enjoy a witchy farm girl book. hope you more experienced farmgirls write one. blessings Phyllis

Phyllis, I think "Book Pagan" sounds really smart.
I just think that when you say pagan it can scare people, because it is referring to a religion.
I was just saying that I like, what you like, granny women traditions. Where it isn't nessesarily religious but anothers customs of how country women took care of themselves (physicaly, mentally, and spiritually)and their families. My granny was a healer but because of her nationality it is considered a "witch doctor".
Does that make sense? I just don't think that word "witch" is used wisely and some important info is getting lost because of fear.
I think we all perform rituals, (eating, showering, driving to town or as sacred as belonging to a faith and church). So it is how we show gratitudes and blessings that make it "witchy" rituals.
So does anyone else want to help me start to define
"What is a Witchy farmgirl?"

Best,
h

Hi, I am new to this and all other chat rooms. I have been following witchy things for over 10 years but just found Mary Jane's Farm this year. I bought a magazine when I was at the feed store buying horse feed. I am happy to hear that there are more witchy farm girls out there. I would love to become a part of this group.


May the force of the Horse be with you.

Hey Heide, now that's what I was trying to say!! LOL. you said it so much more clearly than I. I have studied Wicca, Buddhism,Native Spirituality, Feng Shui, you name it. I'm not a formal person and am much more comfortable with the everyday rituals.

My granny cured me of warts when I was little. She took 3 broom straws and rubbed them on the warts and buried them. I'm sure there was more to it than that but I was very young and can't remember. there were lots of "old wives tails" spoken of around the house. Where was your Grandmother from if you don't mind my asking. I would love to find someone to learn from like your Grandmother.

Hi Beth, good to meet you!!! looking forward to getting to know you.

blessings my sisters. Phyllis

Ladies,

Have any of you read the Green Witch Herbal? It's one of my faves:

Also, here's the Kitchen Witch book:

Enjoy :)

So I have an idea for the witch book, if we want to do it. It could be something similar to the farmgirl cookbook, that we could have custom printed. How about we give each witchgirl a set number of pages to do with as they please? They could decorate them, add recipes, insights, etc. You could even set up collage pages by hand - like real collages - and then we could scan them in and make them pages. What do you all think?


Also, I've looked all over and I can't seem to find the online farmwitchy forum! Can someone point me in the right direction?

I think that is Brillant!

Maybe everyone does a broom and takes photos of them all? For the swap. . .

Okay, I have always wanted this. It is a set of five books, the Kitchen Grimoire, and each one is around $15.95. Does anyone have these? I'd appreciate a Witchy Farmgirl's opinion:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Kitchen-Grimoire-Volume-5/dp/0977472248/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1DX512BT7T580&colid=22CMQPF4KD75X

Also, when do we get our own place on here? The Witchy Farmgirls Place?
