Well done on making a start ... get yourself some thick, sturdy gloves to combat those Nettles ... the stings irritate for so long ... I speak from experience! :o((

Oh bless you have got a job on but it will bring its rewards when you get it cleared. If there are Nettles must be some dock leaves to help the stinging?

What a good start - it seems as if you will never reach the end doesn't it ? Carry on weeding - you'll get there in the end.

Good luck with your new plot. All the hard work will be worth it when you taste your first produce. There's miles of difference in flavor, homegrown is best.

I know they are good for the butterflies but I hate stinging nettles, they always get you even when you`ve covered up, lol, theres always one hiding somewhere waiting for you. Keep at it and enjoy...
