This weekend I weeded just over 500 feet of asparagus we planted this year. I enjoyed pulling out the young tumble weeds. They are great and appearing where I’ve disturbed the soil. I should have had a longer shirt or sunscreen. I ended up with about a 1 inch sunburn across my lower back since I weeded on my hands and knees.
I dug up two if the bocking 4 comfrey plants that I planted last year to move them to our new house. I cut away most of their stems and leaves which I will use to make comfrey tea. About a week ago I picked a lot of the common comfrey from the new house and put it in a bucket with water and it is already stinky and turning the water black. So far so good.
