More Summer Tips Here

It probably wouldn’t anyway, but it’s just nicer.

Are you kidding me? Wasps would just out of spite!

Ok ok, sure wasps. But bees are nice!

Mayo Indian Amaranth
Amaranthaceae Amaranthus cruentus
Beautiful maroon-flowered, black-seeded variety. From Sonora, Mexico, this black-seeded Amaranth is a very vigorous variety with sturdy stalks. Primarily used for grain or to make pinole and atole. The leaves may also be used like spinach. The stalks, leaf veins, and large seed heads are colored a beautiful maroon red, providing a bright contrast to the green foliage. Makes a nice ornamental as well.

What a beautiful plant. And if you haven’t eaten amaranth, you might want to try it. It’s delicious mixed with with other grains for hot cereal. 
Some people just grow it for the looks and let the birds eat the seeds. 

I didn’t even know it was edible. Now, i really want to grow more.


I’m growing this pretty one in my flower garden, and a tall one for grain in the food garden.

“Why do farmers farm, given their economic adversities on top of the many frustrations and difficulties normal to farming? And always the answer is: “Love. They must do it for the love.” Farmers farm for the love of farming. They love to watch and nurture the growth of plants. They love to live in the presence of animals. They love to work outdoors. They love the weather, maybe even when it is making them miserable. They love to live where they work and to work where they live. If the scale of their farming is small enough, they like to work in the company of their children and with the help of their children. they love the measure of independence that farm life can still provide. I have an idea that a lot of farmers have gone to a lot of trouble merely to be self-employed, to live at least a part of their lives without a boss.” Wendell Berry (bringing it to the table)

The onion made it! He’s a bit light, but still moist. I think he’ll bounce back just fine. Thanks hyggehaven!
