Plotting for a Food Garden - Green stuff

For a while now I have wanted to get seeds of amaranth & couldn't find any. How thrilled I was to be given a LARGE bunch of Vlita & found out it belongs to the amaranth family & is known as palmer amarynth.
Find out more here
Boiled or steamed, strained & mixed with olive oil, vinegar or lemon. I ate some with hummus I had made. Delicious!

I wonder if I can find them here? I enjoy all kinds of greens and it would be fun to find something new. I'll check the Asian supermarket. Since it's a feral herb it may not be sold in stores here.
