Stinging nettle!
You can cook it and eat it. Cooking makes the leaves safe. It's great in an omlette!
Stinging nettle. Avons skin so soft will take thee sting out instantly. I carry a stick(like a deoderant stick) of it with when I hike. It also works as an insect repellant.

I'm not eating it:eek:LOL I took my trusty hoe to it this morning.I have no clue where it came from unless it came in a bale of horse hay.But it's hopefully gone now.:)
I don't blame you for taking it out. I know it has some good properties but I want nothing to do with it.
Bella, I knew you were from Oz, but I just saw the location at the upper right corner and it said south Australia. It reminded me of an old sea-faring song and the particular phrase was, "And I'm bound for South Austaralia." I can hear that song in my head now and will probably listen to it again before the day is over. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
