While on our tour of the William’s Creek Water Co. reservoir, our host pointed out some Stinging Nettle plants. Having encountered the stinging nettle in England, I made sure I gave the plants a wide berth. Unfortunately, one little girl didn’t pay attention to the warning and found out first hand how some plants are nicer than others. A young guy enlightened us all on how if you cut the plant at the stalk, you can use the plant’s milk as an anti-dote of sorts for the sting. Some of us were a bit skeptical of trying out his advice, but researching it on the web seems to prove he was right. Just to make sure I don’t ever forget what this nasty plant looks like, I took a picture of it. If you come to visit and go hiking in our forests up here, you might want to memorize this picture too.
