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.

Insufferable cuteness abounds!

The kittens continue in cuteness, this is what they got up to yesterday evening

"ooo look what we have found, a basket of clothes to lie in!"

"I'll just give you a wash dear"

"Quick, act cute, they have a camera!"

"Ha ha it worked! They are going to feed us now!"

I de flea'd them yesterday which needed doing and had a strangely satisfying session picking dying fleas from their fur...I am a bit strange in some of the things I find enjoyable I guess ;-)

Today they went to the Vet's for their first innoculations, worming and check up and our vet thinks they are wonderful! Mind you, the invoice wasn't very nice.....


  1. Ahhh, how cute, a basket full of kittens! We have two adult cats that *still* cuddle up like that together, it makes you all fluffy on the inside, haha!

    Know what you mean about strange satisfaction - I like picking the new tubey bits out of the chicken's growing feathers, the bits where the feather breaks out of and they shed usually. I dunno, thinking about it it sounds gross...

  2. Lovely photos, they look like a bundle of naughtyness!!
