    With the dry weather this Spring, there has been a blissfully long interval between the end of the mud season and the start of the nettle/bramble season. But a week ago I came back from a run with bramble scratches, and today's rain has knocked over some of the nettles so that they are leaning across the paths. Time to go for some walks equipped with secateurs and gardening gloves.

    Mud (for the first time on a long time) and nettles were plentiful on the morning's run around the Worcestershire footpaths with Mrs S. My legs are still smarting from the stings now.

    Maybe we need a separate thread for nettles (and one for brambles too, now I think of it). There's a lovely path between two properties near me that is normally very easily navigated. On today's run the nettles were leaning in dangerously and it became a series of leaps, shimmies and expletives. A sickle might come in handy - not that I own one...

    ah but we already have one on nettles:

    I find a sickle is a very useful bit of kit this time of year though you can probably be arrested for brandishing one on a public footpath these days (mores the pity!)

    Lol. I should have checked. What a mine of information this forum is.

    Mrs noel wants a scythe!! That would definitely be a menace on narrow footpaths.
