harvesting chenopodium bonus henricus last year ... can’t wait for it again... I love its deep and veggie flavour 💥 the succulent triangular leaves may be harvested a few at a time until the end of August and cooked like spinach.
It is an annual or perennial plant growing up to 400–800 mm tall. The leaves are 50–100 mm long and broad, triangular to diamond-shaped, with a pair of broad pointed lobes near the base, with a slightly waxy, succulent texture. The flowers are produced in a tall, nearly leafless spike 100–300 mm long; each flower is very small (3–5 mm diameter), green, with five sepals. The seeds are reddish-green, 2–3 mm diameter
here I am close to one of my favorite places in the world.. a spot called larice bruciato in #valsassina. And this pic was taken by @maurizio_chissenefood .
