What can you do with nettles?
Well, you can leave them for the butterflies. The easiest option.
Or you can make nettle tea, by leaving them to fester in water for a few weeks, then diluting the result to feed your plants.
Or then there is nettle soup. Which I have never got round to doing. However, I suspect it is more likely than using them to make thread.
I enjoyed watching this video about the process of turning fresh nettles into cloth.
But I am pretty sure I will never get round to it myself. Too many other games on the list ahead of that plan, I’m afraid.
