28 July: Well, we are all set up but have nothing to go into the hole yet apart from a shoulder of lamb bone; I made all the vegetable left overs and gravy into soup! Have to do better than this if we are going to become competent green cone users. We will have to hope between us and our weekly guests we’ll soon be making better use, but it is early days yet!
26 July: John did much of the digging until it got deep. Our son, Nick, up from London for a weekend of rest and relaxation found himself doing the rest – very competently I might add, and the green cone is now installed.
15 July: – No – all is well, only seven weeks after we ordered it , it has come, quite undigested but with no instructions at all… For those that aren’t too sure about these things, it should ‘digest’ cooked food left overs including meat and fish but not the veg. and fruit etc which goes into the normal compost. It sounds more complicated than it probably is!
8 July 2009: We ordered about six weeks ago a Green Cone food digester; one hopes as John suggested, that it hasn’t self-digested en route.
We have just moved the outside tap to a new position which is lot more accessible for the guests. Great for washing boots, dogs and bikes.

There are still a few days available in Tom’s […]
