More on nettles

I love nettles! I guess some of the attraction is that most people hate them because all they can think of them is that they sting and they're a pesky weed.

But they can do so much more. They are a sign that the ground is fertile, they can add fertility back to the soil, you can compost them, you can make a fabric from them (not tried that yet), you can eat them, you can drink nettle tea, you can make a nettle tonic and so on.

I've blogged about nettles here, but I also came across this blog post today which has some nice pictures and information that might get you interested in nettles too!
