Russian Comfrey Discovery

While walking my dog today, I discovered two Russian comfrey plants growing in a grassy area.  It is in an area that was being developed until the Housing Bubble stopped it.  It looks to be Bocking #14, but I'm not completely sure.

I want to try this!

It's called hugelkultur.  And I want to try this out badly!  Watch the video.

Here is another video, but part of a series.

PS -- if it sucks up so much nitrogen in the first year, just plant a nitrogen fixing plant.
