I want to try growing amaranth this year and couldn't decide on one variety so bought two: Mayo Indian Amaranth and Golden Amaranth.
Anyone have experience growing them? When should they be seeded? (...around same time as...?) I believe they're relatively drought tolerant, am I right?
I suppose they really need to be separated if I want to save seeds....
How do you tell when they're ripe for grain harvesting, and do you have to do anything special to process them for eating -- threshing, etc.?
