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.

Making pasta sauce with some of the produce!

Today I picked more stuff

Since I last posted I have picked
5 kg Courgettes
5 Kg Tomatoes
3 Kg Purple Beans
4 Cucumber
1.5 Kg Melons ( 4 smallish ones!)

and dehydrated LOTS of stuff.

I decided to make a batch of general purpose pasta sauce today. Tomatoes, Onions, Garlic, Courgettes and green Peppers...all from the garden of course!

Here is a batch of the sauce with Beef mince added to eat for our supper as Spag Bol.

And here are the 5 x 500g tubs of sauce ready to freeze.

Mmm lovely Organic pasta sauce...mmm...
