Borage & Comfrey for a Homestead
I"m excited to add borage and comfrey to the garden. Both were started from seed. The comfrey is the smaller plant that's on an "IV," (aka a wine bottle full of rainwater). The borage is really taking off.
These two somewhat related plants have my attention because of their varied uses. They're food, medicine, and have applications in cosmetics. Comfrey is also a soil fixer and compost enhancer and could be food for animals. Click the links I provided above for great details on how to use them.
