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.

Fertile Eggs!

Today I have not been well at all, I have some kind of chest infection I think which is making it hurt to breathe. So I have not done much today, a load of washing, some paperwork, tidying up and going to collect...the 7 fertile eggs from my friend's farm!
Wwe all went to see the parent birds, they are Silver Dorkings and very handsome they are , too! Here is the magnificent Cockerel with his Hens
They are SO lovely!
And here are the eggs!

At dusk I went and put the 7 eggs in the nest while Sweetiepie was having a drink, she has settled on to them and is going "bok" again....

So fingers crossed everybody that we have success!
