Jewelweed: Touch me nots!

While walking Max the other day, I noticed a familiar plant. I didn't know why I knew this plant until I got close to it and remembered that if you touch the seed pots, they explode!

Later I decided to google it. I found that it is called Jewelweed (yes, one word) and that it is a wonderful plant! You can eat those seed pods... I don't see how if you can't touch them! It is also prevents and soothes Poison Ivy! You crush up the thick juicy stems and rub it on yourself. Did I already know this? I feel like I did .  You'll have to google it yourself for complete info. There's much more.
