I can imagine walnuts being one of the easiest and most prolific but has anyone tried growing rapeseed, flax, sunflower, camelina, hemp etc ?
Does anyone here make his own oil (for food or making soap...) ?

Yeah I had read about planting dandelions whose roots are strong and break the hard clay soil, is this the same for comfreys? I am not sure if comfreys would grow well in Spain, we have 40ºC (104ºF) in summer and 0ºC (32ºF) in winter.
