What would be the best spacing between plants?

(Niagara escarpment region here) :-D

Ottawa Valley reporting in. ;-)

Three feet. It's very bushy. The two foot ones were too close together for the tarp and you've been getting the same crazy wind as we have, so the height doesn't work in it's favor.

It likes whipping it's neighbours.

For Goosefoot...not sure, it's a ditch weed and it's a wide and tall plant as well. As kid the harvest of it was the same as I'm doing Quinoa.

but Quinoa needs a little room because of it's size.

I dont know how it was, but anything growing in a ditch around here is exposed to all matter of pollutants in the air water and soil from the auto traffic, after years of lead in gas, it had to land somewhere.

Hmm Maybe I will see if I can get some to sprout. some of what I have may have been frozen, but hey, it grows where its cold and probably does survive freezing as anything that grows where I live, must if it is to re seed. some plants here, the seed does die during the winter. I think I have some red left. Its not available constantly at my nature foods store.

the red quinoa when made into veggie burgers actually looks a bit like hamburger from the color.

as to air pollution this is the case all over the planet.

OMG, I have it growing in my yard already, wild. I love the plants, having never looked up quinoa I had NO IDEA. OK, mine coming up naturally right now is going to get enough water, most already does. the wild is the red variety.

Thanks - with its size it should make a good visual barrier for my home-grown 'baccy crop (the legal type) too.

How do you remove the saponin coating on the grains and how can they be then used for soap and detergent?

Soak for a couple of hours with hot water and rinse it with hot water in a sieve.

Then do what you like with it. Dry it again, turn it to oatmeal mush. Whatever suits your fancy.

It's either that or spray poison on the plant and the soil to control pests. Which isn't a problem with it because of the built in defenses of the plant. Plus you have a kidney and a liver in your body for a purpose. It's to clean things up on the way through. Goosefoot off a country road is no more 'less' healthy than the food in the field. Besides it grows everywhere. You don't have to grab it from the ditch, just as easily found in the woods.

That's why you wash your food before eating it. Doesn't matter what it is. Never know if the guy harvesting understands the concept of toilet paper or if they are a 'drip dry' guy.

Sensible precautions as always.

It's also VERY drought resistant. Last summer we did not get much rain here in the Ottawa Valley. When we did it was hard rain. 15 minutes hard rain, rolls off the soil and not in the soil.

So keep in mind it is a very tough plant to kill. I tried many ways to torture the poor things last year, and they kept on doing their thing.

Thank you for the info.

I too will grow some this year.

We use what were once flowerbeds around my home and pool as food gardens--now we'll have Quinoa too!! Cheer

I found that as well. It is very pretty and I swear it sings. Like a hum with a shhh noise. Maybe it's how the plant is built. Corn sounds like 'shoosh'. Wheat and Barley 'shushes'. Quinoa 'hums'.

And it smells amazing when in full suit.

yes it is and on the plains around here, it is spindly and skinny. Mine is growing naturally, I never planted the stuff near drain spouts on my house and a few other places. They were not originally in my yard, started up maybe 9 to 10 years ago. I have 3 small trees I have no idea what they are either, that have come from seed in animal or bird poop I assume. I like letting stuff that agrees with the climate here, stay around and grow. Ones I like anyway.

I LOVE THEM, they are unique looking so they get some water if needed when I hand water other stuff. some of it is doing well near flower beds. I leave the seed heads for the wild critters, I had no idea it was quinoa I will encourage them this year again and harvest some for me. Might gather up some seeds still on the ground and move them to other places.

actually I have some heads still on plants I didn't get cut down last fall, I will gather them and shake them out in other places. and see if there is anything in them for me, but I doubt there is enough for a decent meal, since I did cut most of them down.
