The Magenta Spreen lambs quarters that I got seeds of from ROOTS and that is now 6 feet tall in a back porch Water Wise Container Garden, has begun budding up just as Craig Hepworth said should happen...he says to expect it to self sow maniacally. And the self sown "Lagos Spinach" (Celosia argentea?) that Tom Carroll shared seeds of at a potluck here a few years ago that have thrived in 18 gallon Water Wise Container Gardens in my back east bed all summer have now begun to form bloom spikes....the edible leaves are so attractive as are the blooms that I'll scatter seeds in my front beds. Both are high in oxalates so I simmer the leaves in salted water with butter or coconut oil for 10-15 minutes before serving.
