Fragile stalks

So I have tried growing these quinoa seeds twice and both times we got a heavy rain/wind in August and all the stalks broke so I never actually managed to harvest any. But I am trying them again as we love to eat quinoa and it is so expensive to buy in the store. But definitely grow in a protected place or stake up. Maybe I will try some in my greenhouse... They do produce beautiful, colorful heads!
