I tried to make comfrey tea but due to my general uselessness I actually made green alkanet tea. I believe this is still quite useful for the garden. Anyway - today I started ladelling out buckets full of stinking water (I have showered twice but can still smell it on me).
The water was filled with maggots with tube bits - I believe these must be the drone fly maggots. Now having looked on the forum I take it these are not going to destroy all my plants. I ask because I had already poured a few buckets onto the raspberries and asparagus before I noticed them.
It will break my heart if my hard-won produce is eaten from the roots! Can anyone tell me if it will be OK?? I also poured the remaining sludge onto the compost heap - again - I hope this won't destroy the compost already there?
