Nettle beer

nettles

Having watched The Edible Garden on BBC 2 have become inspired for the spring to do two things – make homemade nettle fertilizer for the tomatoes and nettle beer for the family.

I know exactly the rampant patch of nettles I will be attacking, far enough away from the spraying of the neighbouring farmers and in a place where we want to take most of them out anyway.

I have found these recipes for the fertilizer and beer respectively and can’t wait to give it a go:
