It sounds like you have a good stand of comfrey, do you cut up the comfrey stalks when you put them into the potato sack for steeping in water? (more surface area equals more "tea" getting into the water)
I think a weekly dousing with this comfrey tea is plenty. You can make a concentrate of comfrey, it will just take some time and a little heat.
How to make a comfrey concentrate:
gather comfrey and chop coarsely, place in large stock pot, pressing the comfrey down as you load the pot to within 3 inches of the rim, add water to just cover the comfrey.
Place the filled stock pot on a burner and turn the heat on as low as it will go, cover the pot, check often enough that the water is just below simmer (we simply want the water to be hot no boiling or simmering).
Let the pot stew for around 4 hours then turn off heat and let it cool completely still covered (this takes up to six hours).
