"Quail Grass"

Tom brought seeds of this to the Wacky Hat potluck and I looked it below is a great link. I've nibbled the leaves of ornamental celosias but had never heard of this tall wild form that he says bears tender tasty leaves in the humid summer heat, this strain reaching 8 feet in height! I will be sharing seedlings with friends, selling plants to customers in 1 gallon plots, and am hopeful it helps solve the problem of growing fresh greens that chickens will eat in summer. Thanks Tom for a whole new (to me) food crop! I'm guessing the seeds would mirror the nutrition of amaranth seeds. John
