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.

First tomato flowers and lots more tomato plants

 #tomatoplants #polytunnel

Today I have been in the polytunnel standing here

 Pricking out and potting on a lot of these. 

If you want to know how I do my potting on of tomatoes there is a "How to" guide up the top or you can find it here. I have done more than 100 plants now.

These are much larger plants which I sowed the seed for on 2nd Feb this year - These are early varieties, Latah, Salt Spring Sunrise, Costaluto Genovese and Yellow Perfection.

I have already planted some out into their final positions in the polytunnel and they have flowers on them.

but there are lots more plants waiting for me to get on and finish clearing up and sorting out the last bit of the polytunnel. Better get on with it then.
