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.

Wednesday produce

Produce tally today

Eggs 3 (come on girls, get on with it!)

Produce None picked as it has continues to rain and I have hurt my right shoulder quite badly somehow, so I am working one handed. The dull weather has slowed the ripening of stuff in the polytunnel anyway ( fortunately for me!)

However the rest of the spuds have succummed to blight so Compostman has been lifting the spuds we de haulmed 2 weeks ago

and chopping the tops off all the rest...

Ho hum so I guess i'm not going to be reporting a big potato harvest then....
