Can anyone tell me where I can order (online) wild edible seeds (Amaranth, Lambs Quarters, Wild Lettuce, etc)?

V/R,

Your question finally got me to get around to register at heirloom seed swap, and I come back to see you already bought some!  Here's the link anyway:

I've been ordering from this guy for 30-odd years:

J. L. Hudson, Seedsman

Good place to look for wild edibles from all over the world.  There's a "vegetables" section of the catalog (weirdly arranged -- be sure to look under "S" for "Specialty Vegetables"), but many of the plants in the main section are edible or useful in some manner.

(Caveat: Don't eat weird wild stuff from the other side of the planet unless you've researched it.  Some varieties are edible only after proper preparation, toxic otherwise.)

Since I watched Jack's video on amaranth, I am not seeing it everywhere. I need to stop and start collecting seeds. This afternoon I am going for a walk in my field to see what I have been missing. If I find wild edibles I am collecting seeds and saving them for growing in the spring garden or making seed bombs with.

Seed bombs are the coolest thing ever. I am listening to Jack all podcasts and I think its like ep 101 where he talks about revolution with seeds, and how resistance is futile. Makes me laugh thinking that we even have a weapon for it.
