Great crop!

I planted this variety of amaranth last June for the first time and it was amazing! It was nearly the only thing that survived our third summer of drought and routine 100+ temps. I never watered it and it didnt even wilt! The largest plants were nearly 8 tall when thinned to about 18 as seedlings.
