Amaranth is a jack of all trades of the plant world. When the plant is still young, the leaves can be eaten just like spinach. The seeds can be used like cereals, raw, roasted, sprouted, or even to make flour. Amaranth is rich in vitamins A, B, and C, and in calcium, iron, and magnesium. But we especially like how its tall stance and bright red color decorate our garden.

Also called Gombo, this plant produces a fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked, with a taste somewhat similar to eggplant. Young leaves can replace spinach. In some countries, the mature seeds are roasted and used as coffee beans. A member of the hibiscus family (Okra latin name is Hibiscus esculentus), its flower is one of the most beautiful in the garden.
Originally from Africa, Okra entered Spain in the 8th Century with the moorish invasion. Later introduced in the United States by African slaves, it was considered for some time as poor people food. It is an essential ingredient in gumbo and is commonly used in Louisiana and Southern States cuisine.
