Drying nettles

drying nettles May 16

We have lots of nettles on the allotment at the moment and I am gradually pulling them up. They don't go onto the compost heap. Instead, I'm laying them out on the roof of one of the goat houses to dry out in the current minor heatwave. They will then be used for feed for the goats.

Good idea on using the nettles to feed the goats it's also quite good when cooked or so I've been told.

I use nettles in flans and soups and sometimes to make nettle tea.
