Stinging nettle treasure in my garden

Leave a comment

This weekend I did a lot of weeding. Mr Furlong helped me by digging out a large Hogwart plant which comes up every year and which, every year, I lop the top off so it can’t flower and seed itself, simply because I’m too lazy to dig it up. But this year, it got done.

Behind it, I found two most beautiful stinging nettle plants. I was delighted. I have stinging nettles growing in allowed places in my garden because I use them all year to my benefit as food and medicine.

I control my diabetes I use nettles as food in My high fat primal – out of the Dark Age and Stinging nettles and diabetes

And also for pain – Stinging nettles and pain.

I have made loads of dried nettle tea to take me through the winter. And my indoor plants, that worked so well last winter, are recuperating outside till the cold comes.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
