Was just out limping around the garden and yard and noted that the stinging nettles are out and now is a prime time to harvest for eating and for tea. The cat nip is also getting nice right now. Just remember that when stinging nettle starts getting bigger and older it is not as good for you to eat as it forms a type of crystal in the the plant that can bother some folks who have gout or problems with urinary cysts. Once it gets older I do cut it and dry it for my chickens in the winter.. I just take a bunch and soak it in a bit of hot water and put it in the chickens watering dish in the winter.. adds nice minerals and vitamins for them. they love it..
