I would like to buy some here if possible, otherwise, if anyone knows a good supplier, I would like to hear about that as well.  Thank you.

I had golden amaranth from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. I think it all sprouted bit the worms ate the first round so not sure.

I ordered a couple packs from Johnny's, but I could use some more.  I'll look into that, thanks.

I used to grow amaranth from amaranth I bought in the health food store. The variety was good and very high yielding (as to be expected) the only problem is the cleaning after harvest, which is why I am not growing it anymore. I would sow a bit thicker because the seeds might be dried on higher temperatures than are good for germination.

I think I have some. You're welcome to a little if I do. I think I'll be going through my seeds Sunday. Think spoonful(s). Even if you need more, I'll share, but don't want to dissapoint if you need cups or pounds.

It would be great if you have some to share. I'm happy to trade seed or comfrey for them, or buy some. Thanks for the offer.

I get mine from adaptive seeds. They've got a lot of incoming orders but it'd be worth it to try and get some and just ask in the notes for them to replace it with another kind of amaranth if they're out. Specify "grain" amaranth as they also carry some for floral arrangements. They also carry varieties of millet, like Hell's Canyon, that look promising

I'd love to get some sterile comfrey started here! If I find that I have some seed for you, we'll exchange addresses.

In one sense, I have plenty. I have an old stalk hung upside-down I can thresh for seed, plus I have some little red volunteers that must be amaranth or orach. On the other hand, cleaned, packaged and ready to share, I have this:



It's yours. It's not much. Would you like anything else?

I'll send you a box of comfrey. That will be 15 or 20 roots. You can break those up smaller if you like and they will still grow.  You can send anything you have extra of. Edibles please, but anything is fine.  Send whatever you think is fair. And please, don't send more than is fair. I would like this to be a win/win.  Thank you for this.
