Yes, I have eaten Stinging Nettle and gathered it, too, but with prior instructions from an expert.  Of course, you have to gather just the very new leaves at the very top which do not sting and cook them the same way you would any greens.  I liked it.

Have any of you eaten Stinging Nettle?  I used to grow it and thought it was tastier than spinach, which I liked.  It also has less pests.

I started growing it again and ate some this morning with eggs.  It didn't taste as good as I remember.  It may be because it's a little old now, although I only ate the tips and some of the top leaves.

Beautiful photos Sentient!  Enjoy your harvest!  Here in Florida, everything is pretty much done until the fall.  Still getting a few tomatoes here and there, but already planning for the fall. I have never seen geranium flowers like those before.  They look more like orchids!

I've been eating peas for a couple of months now, but other than that, I've only harvested one elephant garlic so far.  Some critter had beat me to it, as it had a small bite taken out.  I suspect the neighborhood squirrel. He tries everything.

I like the color of those scented leaf geraniums.  I may try some as I need some fragrance in my garden.

Your harvest looks delicious!  Beans and peas, fresh off the vine. Can't live much richer than that!

Wow! Lovely pictures of your garden Sentient! Cool beans!

Comment by Daniel W on July 19, 2012 at 8:20pm

These scented leaf geraniums are interesting.  I'm going to try to overwinter them, dry, this winter.  I think they will make it.  Scented leaf geraniums have great fragrances and are dry tolerant.

First veggies of the year for us.  These beans were planted in a large plastic tub in April.

I left too many plants growing in the containers. Still, I don't know that doing so has resulted in lower yield. There are lots and lots of beans still on the plants.

We are also getting snowpeas, which I love, we have harvested all of the garlic and multiplier onions, and the very first cherry tomato (Sungold) is orange and almost ripe. For my maritime Pacific NW garden, this is as early as I've had tomatoes.  Figs are going to start ripening soon.  Or so I hope.

Annie Thomas, what an exciting adventure you had, and the experiences with children delights me. Precious memories for you and as an old woman with lots of adventures stored away in my mind, I am able to entertain myself for hours, just remembering. 

Thank you so much for sharing.
