RE: millet

I was so thrilled when I saw the purple millet seeds. I've been oogling them in my gardening mags the last month. I know EXACTLY where they are going too. For those of you not in the mid-west-ranch/cattle area...I'll try to explain this. The front entry of our farm has a gated area with a cattle guard to keep the animals from leaving and running out on the highway (the lady who owned this place before us put it in...she lost two horses on the highway...very sad). Anyway...along the entryway I've put some rocks and this year I'm planting the millet and some other ornamental grasses and such along the front entry before you get to the cattle guard. I think it will look great! Thanks Pam for my birthday goodies!!!
