This is Wood Nettle, Laportea canadensis, not an Urtica but in the Urtica family. I’m not sure if there are any medicinal uses for it but I like that the flowers appearance are similar to Stinging Nettles. And it has stingers too! Anyone have any experience with this plant? #woodnettles #laporteacanadensis #herbalrootszine

Just an earth loving woman in her natural habitat with her dear friend wood nettle. - yes they sting. Yes I like it.

Some wood nettles still young, and I picked some from this patch (while combating mosquitoes 😑). #laporteacanadensis #ediblewildplants #forageforfood

final harvest of wood nettle (Laportea canadensis) - the nettle season is long, starting in spring with Urtica and then overlapping perfectly with wood nettle until this point in the year when the latter comes into flower. In autumn we will again harvest Urtica new growth, but for the next couple months : yes, we have no nettles. Since this is the last I went in bare handed #doyoureallywanttourtme baby

I'm never enough of taking pictures whenever I saw lushly growing Wood nettles. They seem to enjoy sun-dappled woods and form dense colonies in occasional open areas still within the range of trees canopy. When you find wood nettles, you know that piece of woodland is well preserved. And you feel ensured for a stable wild food resource! What a joy. #laporteacanadensis #ediblewildplants #forageforfood

Getting into the GATHER part of our program here today. We harvested a ton of Wood Nettle (Laportea canadensis) to keep us fueled through the Fall. Did you know nettle is 10% protein? Talk about some good foraging food! 😋

This patch of Wood nettles in a very shady spot still stand young, while in many other places, the same plants have already started blooming (inconspicuously). #laporteacanadensis #ediblewildplants #forageforfood

“Ooo are you...? ouch! ... yup, hi nettles!” 👋🏽🌿 #laporteacanadensis #foraging #wildmedicine

Keep up with stable wild nutrients: Wood Nettle tips and leaves! They're going to flower soon, so the season quick approaching to an end. Last year I dried a lot, so this year I'm gonna try freezing some! #laporteacanadensis #ediblewildplants #forageforfood

Lush and beautiful wood nettles, Laportea canadensis, so beautifully line the paths in the woods. I recently discovered how absolutely delicious they are. A cup of tea made with the leaves is so aromatic and florally like a cup of jasmine tea. I can’t wait to experiment more with these fragrant nettles. #woodnettles #laporteacanadensis #nettletea

Look at you, the pretty wood nettle leaves! Je t'admire. You are intricate, like butterfly’s wings, effortlessly beautiful, and like talented people who are oblivious to their talents (that was how Hemingway described F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literature prowess)! As green vegetable, wood nettles are even more creamy than stinging nettles, with a hint of fragrance 🐼 #woodnettle #laporteacanadensis #canadanettle #红小麻

Wood nettles valley! Foragers heaven into summer - #laporteacanadensis #ediblewildplants #medicinalwildplants

Stinging nettle soup galaxy. Mostly wood nettle actually. I find it odd they’re under a different genus. Never thought about that before. #stingingnettle #woodnettle #nettles #stingingnettlesoup #Laporteacanadensis #urticadioica #nettlesoup #soup #galaxy #outterspace #milkyway #breakfastofchampions #foraging #foragedfood #wildedibles

A while back my friends to the north @ourcookquest and @mikebettscook put the idea of nettle leaves as a green tea substitute in my head with #nettlematcha powder. I’ve made quite a few renditions with both dried and blanched #urticadioica and #laporteacanadensis and the wood nettles definitely show a lot of promise. I decided this year to not only try making a #woodnettle #matcha but to also try an oxidation and “killgreen” step and I have to say that this is going to take the matcha powder to the next level this year.

Wood nettles and pheasant back mushrooms. I think I’ll make a nice little spring frittata! #woodnettles #laporteacanadensis #pheasantbackmushrooms #polyporussquamosus #frittataingredients #foraging
