Amaranths are super easy to grow and they are very drought tolerant compare to most European or Asian vegetables that you often find in the supermarkets. I grow different varieties of amaranths, some native and some non-native.
Ｍy favorite is native pigweeds. I will collect a lot of amaranth seeds every year. I don't eat amaranth seeds, instead I do overseeding which allows me to do cut and regrow so that I can harvest amaranth leaves and young stems throughout the entire summer. Amaranths are easy to grow and very nutritious.
