My Russian Comfrey a.k.a Bocking 14 grows extra fast in summer, so in anticipation of another harvest in Fall, early summer is the best time to harvest those giant Comfrey leaves to make plant/soil food.
There are many articles, in magazines and on the web, about the usage of their leaves for medicinal purpose, mulching, brewing of that stinky compost tea, etc., but I’m going to use it my way, since I’ve found it works well. After cutting off 60% of leaves ~ the large ones from the soil up ~ I hang them to dry.
What better way to dry than in hot summer sun?
Follow-up action/post forthcoming, when leaves are nicely dried …
