365 Frankendael day 147

Here’s a beautiful patch of Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica, NL: Brandnetel) detouring at the front of Frankendael huis. If you like idea of harvesting to dry and store or to cook and freeze, then now is the time. Preferably choose nettle without flowering tops but both are edible.

Here is a bundle of discarded dry Hollyhock flower spikes. These are in Oud Zuid, close to my workplace but you’ll probably spot a similar scene all over town. Each individual seed head is packed with about 20 seeds. It’s a great herb to grow in small spaces such as tree pits and outside of houses.
