    Ah, well, maybe you call it something else down there.  I know it happens because one wrestler in my family fought for Crewkerne and the other for Hewish.😁

    Just filled 5 plastic milk bottles of the comfrey liquid.

    Any suggestions of what I can do with it........No Pansyface that is not appropriate !!

    Wait till spring then use it diluted 1 part comfrey tea to 10 of water as a liquid feed for flowering and fruiting plants.  Chuck the left over gunge on the compost heap and, next time you make it, put a lid on it!
