Built a pond in June and seeded it with proso millet recommended by the local seed company because it would come up and survive the hot summer. Well it came up ok but since the soil sucked it didn't get above 6 inches tall and is now dead so I need to plant the dam again so it doesn't wash out. Parts of it washed pretty good when we got 5 inches of rain last week and need to get something down before the rain this week. I was thinking winter wheat or 50 % rye/ fescue mix. I just want some cover since there is so much bare dirt. Any recommendations? I will probably fertilize next spring and plant Japanese millet for the birds and just mow it so it only reaches a foot or two tall.
