Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live in Herefordshire with Compostman and teenage daughter Compostgirl. We have just under 4 acres of land which contains a woodland, polytunnel, small orchard, garden and veg plot. We grow our own organic produce and make lots of cider, wine, jam and chutney. We also make a lot of compost. We share our lives with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs and assorted wildlife. We try our best to live a more self reliant lifestyle, growing and making and fixing and mending and re-using and re-cycling stuff, if we can.
I hope you find something to interest you in The Compost Bin, remember there are lots of "How to" guides about all sorts of stuff and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

1 Yesterday we went and got 2 new hens Rhode Rocks, very pretty and sweet
2 Thank you Compostman for going along with my desire for more hens!
3 We moved some more logs into the wood to finish off the Log circle around the fire pit in the wood.
4 IT STOPPED RAINING yesterday and we had a SUNSET!
5 IT WAS SUNNY TODAY!
6 I managed ( finally! after 3 weeks! ) to mow the lawns!
(Compostwoman does a tired but merry jig around the computer)
7 Kittens have learnt to use the outer cat flap today and have been running in and out, playing all day...but they STILL come to see us for cuddles regularly which is good.
8 I got a load of cardboard sheets and a kettle from Freecycle. The kettle is a bit grungy but will clean up and is for use on the open fire when we are in the wood
