How do you get even with the weeds?

    I've been known to eat young stinging nettle leaves. Not raw. In quiche and soup. Very tasty actually, like a sort of slightly spicy spinach.

    Oh and somewhere I have a recipe for bramble tip wine that I've not got round to yet but which I'm told is delicious

    WHEN I BECOME A DAIRY MAID I SHALL DO THIS

    Horsetail's reedy exterior and silica content have made it a popular metal polisher and natural abrasive cleanser. One species is so rich in silica that it was imported from Holland for the purpose of polishing metal, hence the nickname Dutch rushes. Another nickname is pewterwort, so named because it was used to scour pewter. Dairy maids used horsetail to scour their milk pails, while early Americans used it to scrub their metal pots and pans.
