Onion growing_edited.jpg

Onions are ready to harvest when the tops of the plants begin to yellow and fall over. Additionally, the onion bulbs should be firm and have a dry, papery texture. After harvesting, the onions should be stored in a cool, dry place to ensure long-term freshness.

Amaranth is a leafy green that can hold up in the heat of Florida's summers. There are several cultivated species in the Amaranthus genus which are all collectively called amaranths. In Florida, you will also hear it referred to as callaloo, as it's closely associated with the Caribbean dish callaloo. Leaf shapes and colors vary considerably, some are red, others green, and some are variegated (usually with purplish patterns on green leaves). You can eat the young seedlings as well as mature leaves
