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.

T is for...

TOMATOS – I love tomatoes. I grow more than 50 plants every year and I preserve them in a number of different ways, so we can eat them during the winter and spring. I love the smell of a ripe tomato, the sweet/sour taste explosion in my mouth when I bite into one, the excitement of eating the very first tomato of the year, warm and fresh from the plant...mmm

I grow about 10 or 12 different varieties, mostly heirloom varieties, and am always willing to have a go at growing a new one.

THINKING – I think a lot about a lot of things. Most of the time this is great, sometimes I wake up in the night though and if I can't get back to sleep quickly enough, I start to think about things, all sorts of things, not nasty or worrying things, just stuff - and then I am wide awake!
