Well I learnt a thing today – and that is that whilst rubber gloves are perfect for picking nettles, cycling shorts are not!!

I was gathering to make soup for my tea – very yummy and full of health-giving vitamins and stuff – you can positivley feel it doing you good as you eat it!

A different way of using nettles, though I’m not sure they do you quite as much good as having them in a soup, is to mix them into your Pimms (, the receipe does not feature on the official website, but take a nettle about as long as your jug is tall, pop it in, add ice, Pimms, lemonade, fruit of your choice and mint for a perfect (if slightly unusual) summer drink!  Splendid!
