Super Weed; Nettles Are An Early Spring Food

The thought of eating nettles might alarm you, as this plant is especially painful with even the slightest brush up against it. But drying or cooking takes all the fight out of it and what is left is quite an amazing super food. It is one of the first to greens to emerge in the spring and in most places it is coming out right now

  1. I'm so sick of snow I'd be happy to find a field of stinging nettles in my veggie patch!

  2. Agreed,it's been a long cold winter and not over yet-come on June I want to get some plants in the ground! Tks for your comment :)
