Foraging Wild Greens: Stinging Nettle

A few years ago, I transplanted some Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) into my garden from a local wild patch. Though this wild edible is more commonly collected in spring, the plants usually send up new growth late in the year. Nettle tops are delicious as cooked greens and are popular in herbal infusions.

  1. We’ve never tried nettle other than from bulk dried leaves and roots for some tea formulas. We are in love with nettle from afar and plan to have a big patch of it on the farm…love love love!
