I found that pretty awesome myself and that is why I decided to share the photos and new info.  New to me anyway.

Thanks but to be honest I need to probably feed it more often.  I have not fed it for nearly a month.  I have being ignoring it by mistake.  Itís in a corner of my garden that I donít go to that often.  It gets some water here and there but is amazing. The leaves taste awesome in salads.  I will feed it some fish emo.

I agree, I love the leaves in salads. Have you tried Okinawa Spinach? those are also good in salads. They work well together in my opinion.

No sir, I have not.  I will have to look for some seeds to plant this fall.  I have Malabar spinach growing at the moment and have grown noble spinach.

Plant looks amazing.  I fed mine fish emo and it took of like crazy and the flowers came out by the dozens.  I only fed mine fish emo all season

Thank you all. How often do you feed? Once a month? Are you foliar feeding or ? I really should be doing that too.

I did not do any foliar feed, maybe I should have but I donít have any.  I fed mine every 2 to 3 weeks except for a couple of times.
