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, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs 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 work as an environmental educator, lecturer, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and have spent the last 11 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

In my polytunnel now

  1. It's all looking very healthy and lovely and green. Most of my seedlings are at a bit of a standstill, they're not liking the cold weather we're experiencing. I had to bring my tomato seedlings indoors, they definitely didn't like the cold conditions that the greenhouse had to offer. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  2. It all looks really good, you've set me off mourning my poly tunnel now, I'm stuck with a long cold greenhouse, I will get used to it, but I preferred my tunnel.

    Only three years to wait and I'll have it back.

  5. Looking good, looking very good!

    I normally don't have a problem growing tomato plants but I'm having a germination disaster this year. Out of about 25 seeds only 4 small seedlings emerged. They were sown back at the beginning of March!

  6. Sylvan I read on your blog about your poor greenhouse - I am so sorry about what happened to your plants :-(

    Martin, I have had lots of friends say a similar story - all mine came up fine but I think the odd weather in March/April has made germination tricky - I have had to have a second go at all my courgettes and pumpkins and the peas were pretty patchy as well!
