One of my pet topics Kev. Great video. I have very sandy, free draining soil and the growing areas needs lots of organic matter. We have the Fen Blows around here where a strong wind creates a sand storm and the arable farmers lose a lot of their top soil. I'm mainly self sufficient in bulky organic matter: pig manure, sheep, chicken litter. I poo pick daily and add it all to the heap. Also any vegetative waste. I keep out anything to woody that won't rot down by the following spring. I use pelleted chicken manure as a pre-planting top dressing. I get great delight in seeing steam rise from the compost heaps and feeling the warmth.
Similar to you but on a much smaller scale. We use household compost and any small garden compost items into one black compost bin. After 6 months or so, it gets transferred into another bin and is shut down for another 6 months. Then it goes on our raised beds and in the fruit cage and fruit trees.
Like you I make lots of comfrey and nettle tea. I compost all the garden and kitchen waste. I don't grow much in the winter so I the beds are emptied and the top 3 inches of soil removed, horse manure, chicken manure and any ready compost is spread on and topped with the soil.
sea weed if you can get it is great, I use the bedding from poultry and goats and of course Alpaca poo, everything is composted, I also use a liquid feed that is left over from cleaning sheep fleece, I also have access to horse muck.
Just plenty of compost, and occasional double digging.
