Marjorie's broadening out from her well-loved gardening books but this is still vintage Marjorie. She describes the childhood she and Margaret Atwood experienced, where family circumstances meant that they learned to do a lot while young. She still subscribes to the "thrifty" lifestyle which is currently in vogue with our concern for the environment, "doing more with less"!
