Carolyn, I remember when you said you grow your own millet spray, but I wanted to know how you do it before I leave. I'm leaving tomorrow at 4 am, so if ere is anything I need to buy on Walmart or something, please let me know... PLEASE!!!

I grow a little bit of millet grass but it would be an exaggeration to call it a spray. The Arizona climate is NOT friendly to growing grain in your back yard, so it's mostly just stems with a one-inch head of millet at the top.

You don't need special seeds to grow it. Just take a little bit of regular birdseed and plant it. Water it at reasonable intervals and hope for the best! You can do this with any kind of seed or grain that's safe for birds to eat.

Thank you! I thought I needed to buy some sort of special seed or kit or something.

Nope. Some birdseed, some dirt and some water is all you really need.
