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.

More Kittens

Well we went out to Hereford today and went to look at a Kitten at a farm in Credenhill.

We have decided to get a kitten now, while we are going through cat flap/litter tray/keep off the bench/learn to get on with Kitty..issues at the moment with Sid ANYWAY, so I said to Compostman that we might as well get the kitten we were originally thinking about, before we heard about Sid...and get all this fun over with NOW. So...we went to look at one Kitten and there were two left, a brother and sister, cuddling each other, oh so cute........

Well...what more can I say??

Sid the (bigger) kitten is VERY taken with them already!


  1. Awwww how cute !! I would love a kitty but cannot due to my OH having a cat fur allergy, how annoying ;O

  2. Why thank you!

    feel slightly embarresed to have gone from 1 elder cat to 4 in the space of 2 weeks...

    but I would rather get all the introducing, jabs, neutering etc etc out of the way..

    Heck who am I kidding! YTHey were just too adorable...and Sid was, also!

    Kitty isn't sure about all this and has retired to his "Old Gents " clubhouse ( aka the Garage loft ) to think about it all....
