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!

Sweetie at the Vets

9 am

Sweetiepie  is now at the vets, as she needs medical care beyond that which I can give. Hoping she survives the op and dressing - will find out later today.

12 noon

Well Sweetie has survived the op and is in hentensive care with lovely Tom the Vet and all the other lovely staff at Leadon Vale,

5 pm

Sweetie home and eating, pooing (lol !) and drinking Tylan laced water after having a dose of Tylan antib orally. Tylan, although not the best anti b for her condition, at least does not condemn her to a life separated from the others as her eggs would be permanently suspect to eat or sell . Baytril does that to hens and is why I had to kill Amber poppet my most loved hen, last year . I really hated doing that to her and vowed never to repeat it...

Also seriously impressed that Tom the Vet dressed her wound with honey. Will add tea tree to her dressing when I have to change it tomorrow .Also adding Arnica, Oregano and Nutri drops to her armoury of help :)Thank you, all of you for suggestions

Thank you also for all for the healing vibes - I am sure it will help and between us all will help Sweetiepie to get the very best healing she can have
