While I would love the giant variety, I would be happy with any lambs quarters I can find seed for.

I always thought wild lambs quarters was just there waiting to happen when you make a garden. I just finished cutting the rest of mine and shaking seed everywhere otherwise I would be happy to share. and the same with my pink centered more domestic variety called "gossip weed" for obvious reasons....it pops up everywhere and is easy to spot butnot as flavorful as the wild variety. My wild lambs quarters becomes a huge plant because I am pinching growing tips all summer to eat but I imagine you mean giant leaves.

Has several varieties available.

 
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
