    Just wondering if millet will come back at all in year 2? I know I want ducks in it eating seed and what not, but just curious.

    I have seen very little Jap Millet come back on its own. It also come back out very early and is long gone by the time the ducks get down here. Here is one plant I found in July that came up on its own. The black birds have eaten all the seeds already.

    My millet from last year had a few volunteers this year. BUT b/c it matured out so early the birds ate all the heads off of it. My new growth ranges from 3-5 weeks out from maturity and with the the dry weather im sooo glad i planted early
