liquid plant feed. We have chopped up the leaves & branches from the plant & have placed them in this old bokashi bin. A heavy rock is on top to hold the foliage down, then I added water until it was just covering the plant material.

The lid is now on the bin and in 3-6 weeks I'll have my homemade liquid plant feed. A couple of notes:

1. Make sure you use kitchen gloves from now on when handling the liquid. Comfrey liquid stinks & if you get it on your hands/skin it will take ages to wash off. Honestly, don't get it on your skin.
2. For using on plants, it's quite concentrated, so use 15 parts water to 1 part comfrey.
3. Comfrey contains N & K, that is, nitrogen and potassium (potash). Because it has very deep roots, it also contains trace minerals.
4. You can also use the leaves as a mulch
5. The cultivar I grow is Symphytum 'Bocking 14', which doesn't self-seed everywhere.
6. Useful article on history, uses, benefits permaculture.co.uk/articles/co

After recently doing lots of online & print research into apple trees, because no one source had all the info I needed, I've collated the key basic info into one post.

Erica carnea 'Myretoun Ruby' - this is a winter-spring flowering heather. A lovely shot of colour on dull days.

Have y'all donated to emsenn yet for eir as yet unpaid labour for SBC?

#Florespondence

This is: Crocus kotschyanus

For some reason, these Autumn-flowering crocus, are flowering now. I wonder if they will flower again in Autumn?!

#Plants #Gardening

I spy with my little eye...

Flower buds on the Blueberries!

This is Vaccinium corymbosum 'Hortblue Petite', which is meant to produce two crops a year.

My Sorrel patch is sending up lots of nice new leaves, so I can start cropping it.

Sorrel is perhaps one of the easiest veg to grow. It's perennial, needs very little maintenance, comes back each year, & it has a great taste. Kind of like spinach but with a lemony tang. I use it in everything, including omelettes, pasta sauces & curries.

More info about Sorrel in a post I wrote a while ago gwenfarsgarden.info/2016/05/sp

Today @puffinus_puffinus has transferred the burden of Sunbeam.city admin to me (temporarily) while the process of distributing the responsibility continues. Sunbeam will not be shut down...

Please spread the word that SBC is not being shut down. And no one needs to scramble to save their content as it is not being deleted. #Sunbeam #SBC #SunbeamCity

I'm starting to feel like things came to head like they did because we were trying to do things internally instead of hiring someone external to help.

If others keep SBC running, I highly recommend you request the aid of Marcia, who has offered a few times, as soon as possible.

I also want a donation to go to emsenn for starting what could have been a very positive process and working with us through it.

Are you moving from Sunbeam City and re-following me?

Please send along an DM (preferably from the old Sunbeam account) confirming your new account, if you dont' have an official redirect on the old profile.

This'll help me avoid opportunistic fakers and such. thanks!

Can anyone please help me mirror the wiki please?

I put it on dat. You just need Beaker Browser: beakerbrowser.com/

Just go to this dat address and toggle and click "Seed this sites files".

I don't care if we like each other or hate each other, if you are considering suicide at any point, talk to me. I don't know if I can help but I can at least provide understanding.

I'll be shutting SBC down in 48 hours unless someone comes forward to take over all the roles / responsibilities I currently hold. It's hard for me to say, but I'm done with this.

Am I the weird one?
