Comfrey harvested slightly over 2 weeks ago got hung to dry, then moved to the garage for a couple of days when Tropical Storm Colin came to visit and got moved out again for summer sun drying for 7 days.
When nicely brown and dehydrated, I laid it in a cardboard box and sprinkled it with a scoop of compost. Then it was left to cure for another 7 days ~ almost similar principle to preserving vegetables.
I use cardboard boxes as it absorbs moisture and prevents condensation and rot. After proper curing, those leaves are now covered with mycelium! So sweet smelling …
Now it’s ready for use. I will mix some into potting soil, some into vegetable beds, some into soil-mix to be used for Fall planting and some into my worm bin. This will be done in summer while all Comfrey plants are growing extra fast & producing leaves extra big and thick. This is my form of organic soil enrichment which I think has Ma Nature’s approval.
