I am still on the hunt for a source of Comfrey. I want to plant some on my property, for the medicinal uses as well as the benefits it provides to the nearby plants. All I seem to be able to grow/find is foxglove. I have contacted a few nurseries, who tell me that they can get it in. Yet on two different occasions, when I show up to pick it up, they have sold it to someone else. Not great customer service. I did manage to find some Comfrey seeds, which I have planted into punnets to grow in my Mini greenhouse.
Speaking of my mini greenhouse, I have been growing lots of seeds in within, trying to develop a supply of seedlings to go into my garden. My Tomato plants seem to be off to a good start, which you can see in the above image in the middle tray.
This morning, I went out to examine my mushroom farm. I set up the Mushroom Kit in September, and since then I have seen almost nothing happen. I have been following the instructions and watering it when advised, keeping it in a location it likes. In all that time I have seen nothing come from this. This morning, I went out, considering that I would probably throw the thing away, and to my surprise I found that a mushroom was growing in the kit!
I think it is a great result. I will keep maintaining the kit to see how many more I can produce. I have not had any success with the alternate methods which I was using. I will go back, research it a little more, then maybe post some information about it soon. The people who have been providing me with my daily coffee at work, and the coffee grounds which I have been using as a grow medium, have expressed an interest in buying mushrooms off me once I get enough production. While I don’t know if I would do that, it is encouraging to receive such requests.
Finally, the huge rock that was preventing me from finishing a fence pile hole… and caused me to be injured during my leave, is out of the ground. I managed to smash it up a little with a sledge hammer, and using some metal bars I extracted if from the earth. I intend to place this stone in a position of honor, to show off the beast that I conquered.
