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.

Wordless Wednesday - busy in the garden.


  1. Are you producing that compost in the barrows yourself? If so I'm amazingly jealous because I still can't get the hang of it.
    You have a very happy bunch of hens there, I see yours get into every nook and cranny too lol

    1. Oh yes Linda - all made by me and my composting creature helpers :-) I make about 4000 l of the stuff every year! I use it to grow my tomatoes in, inside the buckets in the polytunnel. And on the veg beds - that is the dark stuff on the ground before I planted out the beans and peas in the wooden frames.

      Go and have a look at my "How to" guides - thats how I do it and it really does work :-)
