Plants you Should Know; Touch-me-not

Jewelweed, also known as Touch-me-not is a soft fleshy herb, standing 2-5 feet. You can find them in wet shady areas.
When the plant stands under 6 inches, they are edible, discard the leaves and boil the shoots. The ripe seeds can be eaten raw, they are banana shaped.

This plant is very high in minerals, so don't eat a lot, mix it with other herbs or vegetables.

This is also a great plant for soothing poison ivy (before the rash) bees stings and other skin issues. Any part of the plant can be crushed and rubbed on the infected area.
