46. they're also great
for tea and soap. Nettle tea is one of my faves, and a Brit tradition for centuries. When i was travelling there (hitching and field camping) we even used it for shampoo. We would pluck a bunch of leaves, carefully of course, and wrap them in a washcloth with one drop of Dr Bronners on it. Squish abit in the cold stream nearby, it actually lathers a little. Of course, bathing in streams for months at a time can be tiresome. My head grew dreads as a reaction.

Lotsa good "weeds" out there...
