The star up in the vegetable garden is a Mexican plant. It is a Amaranthus called ‘Raza Mercado’. It is at least seven-foot tall now and looking so good. The seed came from Jonny’s Mother, I just hope her crop has done as well. They have a trial of it going on, I need to find out how hers is doing. This year I want to learn more about eating the seed so if anyone can help it would be great. We did eat the small plants when thinning out as part of the salad.
