Here we have Nettle, flowered and going to seed, and if you look closely👀 you can also see the little spikes that sting you! I might not have gotten the focus quite right, but there's quite a bit going on in this pic.
We talk about exotic superfoods like they must come from far flung regions to be useful, when we ignore, poison, cut down, and don't even recognize the ones that are right under our noses!
As a food medicine, the all-around amazingness of Nettle is hard to match, let alone beat.
Nettle draws out the superhero in all of us too, by nourishing us to our max.
Who's a Nettle person? We could all be Nettle people. Do you have a Nettle patch?
