Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have a polytunnel, garden, veg plot and small woodland, all managed organically, where we grow our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and share our lives with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs and assorted wildlife. Oh and we make a lot of compost! We try to live a more self suffient, self reliant lifestyle here, as best we can.

A recycling/reusing sort of day - using the sunshine!

Today it was fine and sunny (hurrah!) so  felt the need to wash and dry stuff - but not just laundry, oh no!
 

I had a delivery of something wrapped in a HUGE length of bubble wrap, so it got washed and hung up to dry. I am sure I can use it during the colder months to protect some delicate plants in the Polytunniel


 As I am planting out all sorts of plants I have grown (finally! the weather is ok!)  - the pot mountain waiting to be washed and put away gets ever bigger!

So Compostgirl and I got cracking and washed a load of Rootrainers and pots - and left them out to dry in the sun - free sterilisation as well as free drying!




I bought a "pre loved" Can O Worms ( originally from Wiggly Wigglers) from a friend, washed out the trays etc and left them to dry - they are now packed away for use in demonstrations on my Master Composter and Master Gardener stands.






Oh! how wonderful to have sunshine available, after such a dull early summer - so we can dry stuff, enjoy  the sunshine, generate hot water and electricity and just - to enjoy :-)
