Stinging Nettles

I’m trying to find fresh “stinging” nettles for a spring risotto. Any ideas where to procure?

Depending where you are, it may be too early for them and I don't think they get shipped around much. It's still pretty brown in the northeast...

They do seem to like it damp-I've hit into them on a golf course, at the edge of some trees where they got fairway water, and at a bird sanctuary on a marsh (where my sister in law decided to see if they had a scent- bad idea). They should be out in force by now on the west coast.

Leading the way in the search for discomfort foods...

Other than in the wild, I've only seen them in specialty markets or farmers markets.
