Looking for a plant to keep bicycles from plowing through your garden? Or something to caution your kids about? Try Stinging Nettle.
My mother used to feed us Stinging Nettle every spring. I have yet to discover a way that I enjoy eating cooked greens of any kind, but the soup he talks about over at Temperate Climate Permaculture sounds delicious, and the information is so thorough.
I must find a way to grow some nettles in the neglected corner of my yard that sits between the garage and my neighbour’s fence.
