Week 1 – Huauzontle

two plants

I chose huauzontle because it is currently growing in my garden and I think it is about time to harvest it.  Need to do some research on it ASAP!  Huauzontle is a Mexican grain crop similar to amaranth.  I bought the seeds from Roughwood Seed Collection.  The leaves and flowers went from all green to all red.  The photo is of only two plants that developed from two single seeds.
