Wendy Morton, 69, an insurance investigator and published poet, saves money by growing her own vegetables, fruit, and herbs, baking her own bread, making her own soups and meals with garden produce, shopping at thrift stores, and air-drying her laundry on the clothesline at her beautiful acreage home in Sooke, British Columbia, on Vancouver Island.
