success with questions

Most of the seeds germinated. The seedlings are growing slowly. I have poor soil and planting area availability -- what will make my seedlings grow most well? Is large container planting okay? I'd appreciate any advice.

Very nutritious!

I do love magenta-spreen. I have them coming up everywhere now. Lambsquarters are a winter staple of ours. I pick and freeze in May to have all winter. You may not realize that lambsquarters have more Vitamin A than liver! (see USDA tables)But the one drawback is that these lambsquarters are so beautiful that I hate cutting them. Prettier than flowers.
