I've fallen under the spell of the WIld Nettles Pizza served at Chez Panisse Cafe here in Berkeley. Our local produce market occasionally sells nettles at around $5/lb. It takes a lot of raw nettles to net enough cooked for a decent pizza topping. I'd like to try growing my own. Has anyone tried growing the prickly beasties?
