Who is Granny…

My name is Marie. I live with my husband and mother-in-law on a bit over two acres in Oklahoma red clay country. I try to live as naturally as possible which is a challenge as DH is not a big vegetable eater. We have two daughters and five grandkids. The girls have learned to send old clothes when the kids come out. That red clay is not easy to clean!

We’ve lived here almost four years and I still have a lot to do. I’ve made some raised beds for gardens but still need more. I have two compost bins but still need more. I have a yard full of bermuda grass and wish I could make it go away.

I am the baby of four kids. Our parents were born in 1930. They spent their formative years in the depression. As a result, all of us kids learned how to not waste much of anything. This site is to hopefully share with others how to get by without all the chemicals and reduce our waste and still have some fun along the way.

Hope you enjoy the journey!
