Foxtail-type millet, Setaria. Ornamental graceful plant and useful small grain; tall stems with reddish brown color . Millet must be dehulled (some equipment required) if one intends to use it as food; also very popular with wild birds, chickens… Originally from the garden of Don Kluever in Hell’s Canyon. A variety made more widely available through Adaptive Seeds in Oregon. I transplanted them to make sure they ripen well. I may try to seed it in place, but I still prefer the precision in spacing transplants give me, same as for corn.
