  1. how about yarrow as a substitute for comfrey (assuming your looking to comfrey as a dynamic accumulator)? yarrow seems to do ok on lesser amounts of water, among its other great properties…

  2. Hey Erik,
    A friend turned me onto to your great RootSimple podcast.

    Glad you enjoyed my “Discover Rare Fruit!” talk at the Nat. Heirloom Expo this summer. Sorry i missed your talk with Rachel and Trathen. So many great talks and displays there!

    I work with Larry Santoyo as a guest presenter at his City of Angels Permaculture courses, my next time being Dec 6/7. I will talk on the evolution of fruit, history, discovering and preserving old fruit trees, food forests, companion/guild plantings, propagation, do a rare fruit fruit tasting… Mmmmmm- the usual unusual stuff.

    Everyone is invited to explore more about fruits and productive perennial polycultures on my website:
    cornucopiafoodforest.com and/or follow me on Twitter: @ValenzuelaJohn

    Thanks again.
    Keep it juicy!

    • John,
      Your lecture at the Heirloom Expo was amazing! I’d love to have you on the podcast!
