Nettle soup.

Thankyou for all your helpful comments on my last post. Just to follow up, the gallery that takes my jewellery has declined the dolls, so has given me a bit of room to think some more!
I have taken bags off  Folksy and put them in a local shop, so I can hopefully get some interest. A good excuse to buy more fabric. I do find it really hard to turn down opportunities in case they are steps forward.
I like to make the money we do earn go as far as possible, and so I love a good old forage!
Today I wanted to try nettle soup. I know it's not the best time of year, but as I've had a horrid cold and cough, I read it was good for that and many other things.
(when I read about other ailments I think- Oh yes I have that ...and that ...and...) 
 The soup I make always turns out the same colour!
Chop all the veg up, fry an onion and garlic, add the veg - anything you have to hand.
Add a stock cube or two and cook through. Then blend.
Lovely with garlic bread.
Thinking of nature and gardens I couldn't resist a couple more Eden pictures.
I love the little house in the tropical dome. It may be daft, but I love the washing hanging out,
at least it would dry in there, unlike mine!
And the veggy plot outside.
I love the willow frames.
Apparently slugs don't like red lettuce, can this be true?
Such a lovely sheltered site.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.


  1. How was the nettle soup? I've heard that they use nettle for other remedies too.

  2. I do love a good forage! I haven't made nettle soup for years, I'm more likely these days to be a bit dull and forage things like elderberries, nuts,
    damsons & field mushrooms. I bet my boys would love the idea of nettle soup so maybe we should make a batch. Bethx
