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, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and spent 10 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!

Wrapping up the wormeries.
So with bubblewrap around the body and fleece over the top of the wormeries the worms inside should be ok - and I can still get to lift the lids to keep them fed.
The worms are still very active. Hello worms!
I have also grouped all the more vulnerable plants together and draped them with fleece - they should be ok until it gets to below -5 all day - if that happens I will have to get out more fleece, net curtains etc.
Off to harvest the Spinach now - don't want it to spoil from the frost.
