Stinging Nettles!

Steve's Photos

Beware of these delicious looking nettles.  They are not poisonous, but will give you a sting that can a few minutes.  Also known as Stinging Nettles, they are easily recognizable for their stinging hairs found at the stem.  Eaten raw, it can be unappetizing.  When cooked with vegetables whether oniony or lemony, it can be an excellent choice of nutritional balance for your body.  This plant can also be used to make a healthful tea. Nettles are available from early spring until late fall when they start dying off due to oncoming low temperatures.   Photos available at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/
