It's not nice to play favorites, but if we had to choose one plant which can pretty much do it all, it's Stinging Nettle!  Nettle is nature's multivitamin.  Its amazing golden root structure mines deep for vitamins and minerals and pulls them to the surface into its roots, leaves, and seeds.  It's one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can add to your diet.  And the best part is, not only is it extremely nutritious, but it's also DELICIOUS!  We enjoy the leaves in place of spinach in all our favorite recipes, in pestos, and sprinkle the tasty seeds on top of most of our dishes to enjoy their stress busting superpowers.  This same abundance of nutrients also makes nettles an awesome homemade fertilizer.  Every garden needs a nettle patch. Food, medicine, fertilizer, and garnish in one.  Can you tell we like it a little bit?  :)  

We just thinned our organically-grown giant nettle patch and have rhizomes available for a limited time.
