    I have heard say that it is the healthiest plant one can eat. The taste can be a bit too green when it is young or not dried and can be quite bitter,but its not so much the taste sensation that you go for with nettle,its the goodness that it does to you.
    The very start of spring is the time to get out and pick. I find that just the two to four top little leaves hold the best healing power,and as well as enjoying them,it takes a long time out amongst nature to pick a bag of top leaves,so fresh air and exercise are also thrown into the mix

    Was the Romans that introduced stinging nettles to Uk , there were only Dead Nettles here before , they were going on about it on Gardners Question time on R4 a while back .

    Love parsnips with honey and black pepper. Mango, watermelon and cherry are my favourite fruits.


    The trouble is, you think you have time.

    For a salad you have to pick them the day before and leave them for twenty four hours,probably a bit less. Its that long since I had them in a salad I can not remember exactly how I did it. I think I just left them in the shade. Sorry my memory is getting terrible.

    Have not got time to read through this link as just finished my tea and got to go and mix up my last load of mortar of the day,but have a look in here-

    Hopefully it should say in there

    When I was suffering very badly from a trapped sciatic nerve a few years ago,the only thing that helped was stinging my legs,it took your mind away from the sciatic for a moment and gave the muscles around it time to decontract.
    whoever said about being whipped with them knew some truth about them helping sciatic pain,but was a bit of a pervert I reckon !!

    That probably works in the same way as a TENS machine. Makes sense.

    I love most fruit and veg and I eat a lot of things from the wild too like hawthorn leaves clover and various edible flowers and roots..but my all time favorites are tomatoes ..all varieties and colours sizes..i could eat them all day especially the piccolo (small ) cherry toms....im also very partial to marsh samphire..when i lived in Pembrokeshire by thec estuary marshes i ate tons of it( a few decades before Hugh Fearnley Fishing-Stool made a delicacy of it).
    I love fresh peas too and fresh pineapple and peaches but dont seem to be able to find decent ones the last few years..And wild Scottish raspberries...yum.

    Granny Smiths ??? You have not lived , the best apples on earth are not sold in supermarkets .. track down a Worchester or a Laxton . they are proper game changers, and don't even get me started on rare breeds

    We just love all the free and wild stuff when it's in season, amazing how much free stuff is out there. Loads just outside our door, best mushrooms I've tasted in years, and great chesnuts, loads more. On one small walk around another local lake we wish we'd brought bags, at least 17 edible foods, and we weren't even really looking. We went back though

    Tomatoes are so underrated by the way, some amazingly tasty varieties out there
