My infusions of late are quite green! I had 2 separate jars of nettles stored away from last year's harvest, one from the spring, sometime between mid-April and mid-May and the other harvested in September, both from young plants that had not yet flowered.
The difference was more than noticeable. The color, flavor and aroma were very drastic. I thought I could get away with harvesting in the fall from new plants but after seeing the above infusions, I'll only harvest for food in the future!
