Stinging nettles

argylesock says… Stinging nettles (Urtica dioica) are edible. Here are some nettle recipes. But do avoid picking in places where dogs are likely to have been doing the dirty because you could pick up zoonotic diseases.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

    Nettles also have blood cleansing propeties, so great for detoxing!
