Nettle cloth - step 1 - Ed's journal
Nettle cloth - step 1
Well, my initial nettle gathering foray is done - Tall and ripe ones seem to uproot quite easily. I tried rudimentary quality control by height (aimed for about shoulder height) and whether they broke when being lifted about mid-stem. I figure the better candidates will be tall and strong.
So I have a batch now - my initial cunning plan of a tesco "green" carrier bag... well, as you can see - they didn't fit :)
They are now in the back garden, lightly covered by a tarpaulin to dry.
Nettle cloth - step 1

I think next time will need to be tarp + string to tie the nettle bundle(s) - that should allow for easier carrying.
