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.

Friday produce

Eggs 4 (Thank you Henny, Ginger, Attilla and Wednesday)

hmm....perhaps letting Henny and Ginger go back to the Eglu, leaving Thursday back in with Attilla the Hen and Genghis Hen was a bad move? as she has not laid an egg since being put back in with them....:-O

Rose petals laid out to dry, big bunches of Lavender, various flowers and herbs for drying for flower arrangements hanging up in the Study, Sage that I dried bottled for later use ( its good stuff, too!)Last lot of Lavender stripped off the stems and bottled up for later use. Also made some craft things in honour of Lughnasadh
....a corn dolly, some Lavender favours

Mmmmm I am relaxed and fragrant, now !

Some courgettes nearly ready but I will get then tomorrow morning I think
Ditto some more tomatoes, they will be just that little bit sweeter if I pick them tomorrow!
