Two good things about dead nettles --
(1) when there's nothing else blooming, they attract bees, wasps, and other nectaring insects. Earliest bumble bees will go for these.
(2) if I uproot them, I almost inevitably find earthworms congregating in the roots. There must be something about these weed root zones that they like. (root exudate? >> microbial activity?)
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.
