Amaranth: from pigweed to politics
publication date: Jun 1, 2001
Pigweed season is not my favorite time of year. We always tell newcomers that it’s finite. By August the seeds aren’t germinating, and the first fall frost kills any survivors. During the dreaded season last year, with plenty of time to contemplate, I started to think about the weed in a broader context, as part of the amaranth family. I decided to do some research, with the idea that knowing the enemy could help me overcome its superior power.
