No need to grow in field , they do not make leggy habit in full sun and abundance in alder understory is worthy crop. Might be interested to view my blog entry and link in GB on wearing nettles.

brand spanking new video which includes eating nettles raw!
I have a nettle party and just eat them..,, but if anyone wants to dance in the woods and have a nettle party...i'm in.
It's a safe assumption a dancing-in-the-woods nettle party would not be skyclad.
I also dry some nettles for use throughout the year,... they lose the sting when dry also.. you can grind them into any foods
great video paul. never eaten them like that before.
heres one of my fav nettle recipes, nettle pesto!
It would be great if there was a huge nettle feast and I could take video of all the people with lots of different nettle dishes.
Partaking of nettles in every possible way seems to verge on an act of patriotism for the French. There is an Association des Amis d'Ortie (Association of the Friends of the Nettle) who have annual meetings, and of course, the requisite Fête des Orties, or nettle festival, where you can listen to lectures, meet with other impassioned nettle users, and of course, indulge in nettle gastronomy.
a good friend of mine has been an herbalist for the past 30 years or so.
he makes amazing wildcrafted teas out of his backyard. nettles are always a staple ingredient.
simply runs them through a green-star juicer stem and all.
i transplanted some from his patch in my yard 2 years ago,this summer ill harvest and start adding to my green juices. great stuff!
