Fred the Dead Nettle

fredHopefully I will keep him alive…and our neighborhood thief won’t take off with him.

I give him no more than a week either way.



  1. Oh nettle! I just posted a way to make vegetable rennet (for cheesemaking) with nettle! So – there IS something good about nettle! Hahaha.

    1. It actually has really pretty pink flowers now and it’s supposed to be good for bees. I think that this one is good for herbalism as well, but I’m not nearly well trained enough to poke at it for that.

  2. Lamium, aka purple dead (as opposed to stinging) nettle, is nutritious free food but doesn’t last long. Harvest while ye may!
