    Today I went nettle foraging. Nearby were some generous blackberry plants. They aren't ready, most of them are red and there are only a few blacks, but I managed to pick a cup. When people drive by I pretend I'm doing nothing special there… Don't want them to notice the fruits. Mine! All mine.

    Markus I know our Elders in the Caribbean eat this stuff, & I use to hear them talk about it as a child, but paid no attention. Our Elders really knew what was good to nourish & heal the body. TY for the reminder!!!

    Yes, they are good, but I take off the skin. With a knife I cut off the ends. Then I make a vertical cut through the skin only. I push on the cut with my pointer fingers, and the pear comes out easily.
