During yesterday’s clearing session, we uncovered a few good finds among the weeds. The best of these (better than the frog, the fluorescent yellow spider, and the assortment of spuds) was a healthy-looking comfrey plant.
Comfrey is, I gather, an elixir of life when it comes to allotments, so I’d been wanting to get some and give it a go. Apparently it can be used as a green manure, its leaves can be cut and laid as a mulch, or it can be used to make a liquid fertiliser.
So when we came to the comfrey plant we weeded around it. Hopefully it’ll live up to its reputation.
