  • Millet, Auksés

    Millet, Auksés (Organic)

    Setaria italica. Foxtail millet.

    Foxtail millet is the type sold for bird food. Small seeds have yellow hulls. Very easy to grow, but hulls must be removed before humans can eat it (not an easy task). Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by The Lithuanian Ministry of Agriculture in Dotnuva, Lithuania. The breeder there has been working on millets since long before the collapse of the Soviet Union and he says the birds at the zoo prefer his varieties. Try using it as a cut flower, feeding it to chickens and ducks, or fermenting it into beer.

Gorgeous in flower arrangements. From Don Kluever who gardens in Hells Canyon off the Snake River, via a Seed Saver’s Exchange member in Idaho.
