Nettles can be used in so many ways. First and foremost, it’s a delicacy that is also super nutritional and contains chlorophyll, which makes it a superfood. But nettle can be used also as a natural fertilizer for the garden and food for chickens.

Chicken Feed

To make chicken feed, dry the nettles before feeding the chickens nettle flakes.

Fertilizer for Garden

To make fertilizer, make sure to use only nettle leaves without seeds or you will end up with nettle growing in your garden. Cover a bucketful with water and let sit for 3-5 days, depending how warm it is. (Warmer=shorter soaking time). Use it to water plants.

Superfood Powder

Besides making nettle tea, I also like to make a superfood powder that I use in smoothies. I just put dried nettle leaves into a vitamixer and process until it’s a powder. Perfect for the morning smoothie.

We’re drying flowers from our garden to be used to decorate wrapped gifts and for other craft ideas. We’re doing the fast and easy version by placing them in between pages of a book.

Today on our blog I share 10 things we have stopped buying since going zero waste that is also saving us lots of money.

Paper towels—It’s been over 10 years since we bought paper kitchen towels and instead we use reusable kitchen towel roll that is a great alternative for the disposable paper kitchen towels. Another great alternative is to cut up old bath towels, cut up old t-shirts or use cloth dish towels. We estimated that we have saved $2000 over 10 years just by not buying disposable paper towels.
