Have you ever eaten nettles? Some parts are edible you know. Above is what nettles look like growing in the spring. Don't pick them without gloves on. They aren't called Stinging Nettles for nothing! Below is what they look like after picking and washing. These have a note on them because my BF came in and looked at them and I could tell by the look on his face that he was getting ready to put his hands in there and fluff them up. Just a little reminder. I cook them just like spinach, kinda steam them with some garlic and olive oil and then a bit of balsamic vinegar. Very nutritious and free!
Above you can see our new crop of tomato and chard plants. We have since planted them out, the chard is planted all over the yard because it is such a beautiful plant. The tomatoes are in the little makeshift greenhouse. I'll show you more of those later in the season.
