Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically and to Permaculture principles, which we share with Chickens, Cats and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I am a Master Composter and have spent more than a decade as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council.
I'm a self employed Environmental Educator so I run workshops and events where I talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. I also run crafts workshops and Forest School/outdoor play sessions in our wood.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun.

Planting and mmmmmmmm harvesting

Today I planted out 40 sweetcorn plants and weeded the raised beds by the compost area...watered PT and the bashed up bean bed :( ....picked some broad beans, baby carrots, various herbs, new pots, first cucumbers, blueberries, strawberries and courgettes (yay!) and some salad stuff for lunch

also planted out more peppers and tomato plants...have no room left in PT so they must take their chances outside...but DID plant Melon in PT ...and it has a tiny melon on it already!

Have tomatos turning red already in the PT...... :shock:
