Shiny Black Amaranth
Adam has tried to grow some sort of new grain or staple crop almost every year he's had a garden at Linnaea Farm. These efforts have taught him lots but mostly a deeper respect for the farmers who provide our daily bread. He's have always been disappointed by the effort required to get results, but Shiny Black Amaranth changed all this. Huge purple flowers soared to the sky with easy to thresh seed in abundance, as well as the beauty of their growth throughout the season, and leaves steamed and eaten in the spring, this crop is a winner all season. The least effort for the greatest results he's have found in all the plants he has sown in May for a late September harvest.
