Ouch!

Need a bit of help from the plant guys.

Last evening while fishing the kids and I brushed up against some plants. Very soon after felt like hot small needles in our legs. This pain persisted for a long time.

I know there is a name for these things but it alludes me.

Help!?

Re: Ouch!

Very appropriate place to ask that one, as nettles are actually edible!

Re: Ouch!

we used to live next to a creek and had a lot of the stingling nettles. There is a weed that grows near them called Jewel Weed. It is supposed to help the smarting if you rub the juice from this plant on it. In the summer it has orange and sometimes yellow flowers and when it goes to seed the pods explode when you touch them and send the seeds out like little rockets
I bet next time you see the nettles you will avoid them. LOL!!!

Re: Ouch!

Don't avoid them, cut them, take'em home, and simmer them a little bit like you would any other greens. They're delicious!

Re: Ouch!

Thats what my pap told me we call it glass weed cause it sounds like glass breaking when you crush it! but dad said the cure grows beside the cause! its also good to rub on poison and let it air dry!!

Re: Ouch!

I thought it was Jewel weed that was the "cure" for stinging nettle?
