I just cooked up a pot of Stinging Nettles today! Used the juice for tea. It was pretty good. I drank about 1/2 cup, with some honey, then mixed in some Blackberry tea and more Stinging Nettle juice.Collector said:That is interesting I wasn't aware that nettles were edible (live and learn)! So far all of my experiance with nettles whether it is hunting, fishing, or hiking has been negative for me.
P.S how do you itch your throat when you eat them? LOL
Would Lambs Quarters grow during the winter (Growing Zone #8/14)?hoodat said:Don't forget lambs quarter. It's a reliable and tasty green. They come up wild in disturbed ground in every state. Some people even plant them in the garden on purpose.
digitS' said:Looks like stinging nettle. It would be good to have Hattie weigh in on this one. Seems I remember that she has nettle in her garden.
I have eaten and really enjoyed nettle . I haven't enjoyed the blisters it caused after I rolled over on it while lying in a lovely mountain meadow .
Lambs quarter is very reluctant to grow in the Winter even in those zones. It really needs heat, full sun and long days. It will survive but make very little growth.vja4Him said:
