There's just time to let you know (why didn't I think of this before) that my article on Composting Basics is in this month's Smallholder magazine.
Liz Wright, the esteemed editor, is running a Getting Started series on everything you might need to know as a budding smallholder, so I'm in there next to Choosing a House Cow and Starting with a Pig or Two!
Smallholder is a fascinating (and informative) magazine for anyone who has a yen to be a bit more self-sufficient. The poultry section is always very strong.
Meanwhile, composting seems to be something that many find discouraging, although really there's nothing to be frightened of. If you have any composting questions, then do click on comment and post your query below and I'll do my best to help.
