Comfrey helps to provide nutrients for your soil and the leaves are great for the compost heap as comfrey’s quick rotting leaves work with bacteria and soil organisms to help speed the composting of dried leaves and other high carbon materials.
We plant comfrey in all of our garden beds because the deep tap roots help to break up our heavy clay soil.
Many people who are looking to make the move off-grid often wonder about the appliances they can run with solar powered battery storage.
This is our experience…..
When we first moved in, we quickly created a raised veggie bed to produce food and within the next month our tomatoes, capsicum, asparagus, eggplant, string beans, broad beans, pumpkin and snow peas will start producing.
To help make the garden bed as productive as possible we added mushroom compost that we bought from the side of the road from a mushroom producer, mountain soil we collected from piles that have been excavated from the side of the mountain to maintain the roads after rock slides when it rains, plus we added horse manure we had also bought in bags locally.
