Amaranth has no hull to remove--

great beginner’s grain for cereal, polenta, and soups.

High in protein. Start after frost date when soil is warm.

When seeds first start to drop to the ground cut heads and hang in protected place with good ventilation over a tarp to catch seeds.
When dry, rub heads to remove seeds and winnow.
Loves heat.

We have both vegetable and grain types. 

Grain Amaranth (code begins with GAM) The grain varieties produce high yields of grain; while all amaranths make good pot herbs, these varieties may be too tough for salads. 
Leaf Amaranth (code begins with VAM) -- The leaf varieties are optimized for leaf production. These are good both as pot herbs and in salads. You will still get grain but perhaps not as much as grain varieties.
