I wan't to grow some kind of mulch on my drain field that I can mow and then feed to my vegetables beds ... from this thread it sounds like the roots of comfrey and vetch are too deep (is that correct), and that white clover and grass would be good for this purpose.

Where I live, we have what we call bluestem. It grows 10 foot tall in a good year. Sold as an ornamental grass in places but we have whole pastures of it.
