Default Growing Amaranth

Has anyone tried growing Amaranth grain in your back yard? I'd be interested
to hear your thoughts.

Me too. I'm having my first go at amaranth. I started seedlings
inside, but I suspect direct seeding would be a better way to go.

I'm as interested in the greens aspect as I am the grain. They are
very nutritious, they say.

Most excellant links, Bill. THanks.

Pond work, as in mucking out the winters accumulation of "stuff"?

Stinky stuff, that. Outta be good on the garden, eh?

Charlie


Every thing was going well but then the GF keep on kicking out. So in
and out and up and down who needs a GYM? Time for a new pump
me thinks. I can handle stinky stuff but I do not like fish shit sprayed
on me.

Bill




BTW That nuworldfood stuff only needs to rest in boiling water.

Good. I expect a Full report at the end of your growing season Charlie :-)

I am still 6 months away at least from needing to sow so your successes or
failures will be good information.

Make a diary note to write your report.
