Grasp the Nettle?

Now much has been said when I’ve been on ABC radio about the virtues of nettles. Well, I finally was able to get to weeding the vegetable patch this morning and hidden in the depths was a pretty fine crop of nettles.

This is what they did to my arm.

One thing for sure – it won’t be served here anytime soon…
