Killing Stinging Nettles

I am desperate for a cheap and environmentally friendly way of getting rid of stinging nettles. Is there any alternative to just pulling them out by hand or am I just dreaming?

Get rid of them? Holy cow I wish we had them! They are delish! No, I'm not kidding. Use them in any cooked dish instead of spinach. I am including a couple of links for recipes, the first one also will talk you through how to prepare them.

The short answer has to be "no". As far as I know there is no non-chemical method of getting rid of this area of nettles short of pulling them out by hand, and that will take forever. Good luck.

Hi, thanks for the lovely ideas but I am afraid I don't just have a few nettles, out of about 4 acres 1 acre is a dense jungle mostly of huge nettles. As we are trying to become as self sufficient as possible I really can't spare that much land, but I promise I will keep a few for wildlife and to make soup.
