Herb dryer

Monday, May 13th, 2013

If you grow your own herbs then this is something you could probably use to help dry some of your herb crop to ensure you have dried herbs in the cupboard for over winter.
Whilst we’d all love to use fresh herbs all year round it is really hard with lots of plants to keep them growing through the year. Growing a surplus and drying them is a great way of storing and being able to use your own home-grown herbs all year round.

Herb Dryer
Our herb dryer is a practical, easy-to-use and stylish device designed to dry herbs, seeds, chilies, mushrooms and more.Air drying is an ancient effective method of preserving crops, which intensifies flavours and enables you to use your home grown and foraged produce all year round.Made from salvaged rubber wood with thee unbleached cotton sheets, the dryer is easy to assemble and comes with instructions .
Measures 37cm wide by 37cm deep by 26cm high.

Food waste compostingTo fully appreciate Green Johannas design it helps to consider what is necessary to recycle waste the way nature does. Every year the same natural cycle occurs; leaves, twigs and trees fall to earth, decompose and become food for new plants.Naturally occurring micro-organisms, bugs and worms, together with oxygen and moisture do all the work. In the process heat is produced.Some very valuable micro-organisms work at temperatures as high as 65C (150F)! This is hot composting, oxygen in the air is critical to the process.

Rollable compost bag

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Fantastic products at Original Organics and with a brilliant invention here for making compost quickly. There are several composters that allow you to rotate the container which speeds up the process by mixing everything together. This one is the cheapest I’ve seen and it does it by being rolled on the ground so there’s no complicated set up.
It’s certainly an interesting idea and I think something people would all like to try. If you can make compost in 6 weeks with a little effort then that’d be fantastic for your garden.

Haxnicks RollMix Rollable Compost Bag

Haxnicks RollMix Rollable Compost Bag £15.99
Home composting has never been easier, quicker or more fun than with the RollMix™ Composter!Simply add the specified mix of organic waste from the simple how-to instructions included on the reverse of the pack.The polyethylene fabric traps heat, and by adding water and rolling, it is possible to make your own compost within 6 weeks.With your rich, nutritious compost you can top up raised beds, add to the base of plants and even use as a peat-free potting compost.

This is useful if you live in a rented property and don’t want a permanent long term compost container or have limited space.

I can see this being incredibly useful – imagine turning out good quality home made compost every six weeks! Rolling this looks easier than turning a huge compost bin full of material.
