    I grow brown top millet in the spring/summer. It's got nice sturdy roots, and pops up in three or so weeks. I'm in SC though. =]

    YUP! If we don't have enough seed for the whole pasture with the bahia, we're going to finish it out with Bermuda.

    Yep, millet is a decent warm-season annual. Just know that once it gets frost, it releases toxins and isn't safe, until, IIRC, it's been well-frozen (but don't quote me on that, it may never be safe again after a frost)

    I know this is an older thread but I am curious of the results. I am going to be the same situation soon with sandy loam.
