Move over rice and wheat, cause I grow tall stems loaded with seeds that are easy to harvest and thresh. I'm beautiful too with seed plumes of pink, burgundy, and gold. Oh, and my young leaves are edible just like my cousin Lamb's Quarters.
I may just be the best thing you've ever found!
help me grow:
I like cool conditions and can tolerate frosts so plant me as soon as the soil is workable. I'll grow laden seed-heads in about 90-120 days. If it gets windy, I may need some support to stay standing tall.
enjoy my bounty:
Let my seed heads form and dry before harvesting and threshing. Rinse my seeds well before cooking to reduce their inherent bitterness.
