Nettles!

The nettles are starting to establish themselves around the fringes of my garden, and apparently they're at their best early (though you can eat them whenever).

Nettles = free, local, vegan, good for you. They are the uber-food.

A very good article on nettles (not all vegan)

In summary:
- Pick carefully!
- Sting disappears when you cook them
- They cook like spinach, and can be used anywhere you'd use spinach.
