Hi Maureen (fancy meeting you here! ;-))
I don't know about the rest, but amaranth and lambs quarters are some of
the most nutritious veggies you can find. They'd make a great cash crop
for the open minded, or at the least free lunch for the workers. I
recommend removing by harvesting! Just grab the plants (watch out for
the amaranth, some of them have nasty thorns) and pull out of the
ground. Cook like spinach. Yummy!
