In Denver the various chenopods grew like crazy in the wild and the garden and re-seeded like crazy but here I have always failed. Last spring at the ROOTS swap in St. Pete I got a few seeds of Magenta Spreen to try once seedling THRIVED and got 5 feet tall and re-seeded big time. And just like Craig Hepworth (Gainesville?) told me, I have seedlings all over! Luckily they are easy to pull and the chickens love them. Here are two pics of seedlings plus last year's original plant...definitely a summer veggie. It has high levels of calcium oxalate so I boil the leaves in lightly salted water with butter or coconut oil for 10 minutes to dissolve it out. John
