If you've just started your indoor vegetable garden and want some free greens (and are living on the northern hemisphere), then this is the time to go out and pick nettles. Just remember to put on some gloves before you start and keep them on untill you're sure the nettles are cooked. I've tried all of the tricks to pick them barehanded, so nowadays I cover my entire body and use a pair of old leather gloves.
