Super Nettles

The picture above is of a young wood nettle plant. Wood nettles have the same medicinal properties as stinging nettles, about which I read a terrific article today. Nettles make a great spring tonic, a tincture of the leaves can help with seasonal allergies and the plants has tons of vitamins and minerals. So read the article and go looking for nettles. With our early spring, they'll probably be all over their usual places.
