The compost heap is the ultimate recycling machine, taking garden debris, kitchen waste, shredded paper and cardboard and turning it into the black gold that is nutrient rich compost. Fill or top up beds and pots, dig it into the borders or top dress with it. The nutrient enriched compost is returned to the earth and the garden soil is renewed.
Woman v Rabbit
Woman V Rabbit blog is written by Tabitha Fox and by the occasional guest blog writer. This blog combines my love of self-sufficiency, home growing and the stress of owning a free-range rabbit. Life often gets very busy but Covid-19 has been the catalyst to get my garden growing again!
I have been using this time in lockdown to define different areas of my garden, build new beds, grow food and be amazed at the diversity of wildlife that I am very lucky to have here.
This blog is designed to grow into a helpful source of information for anyone with a bit of space to grow veggies and an interest in sustainability. Gardening on a shoestring, with optional power tools, hedgehogs, and eco-friendly toothbrushes. And to be quite frank, anything else that takes my fancy as I go through life.

"The rabbit works hard to ensure that I still buy veg from the supermarket, but… one day… my crops will be consumed by the humans they’re intended for" "All my planter creations are specifically designed to be rabbit-proof."
