Sorghum Suggestions?

This year I precariously scattered sorghum seeds (more specifically Hungarian Broom Corn Sorghum) throughout the empty spots in the garden. That's kind of my approach when I'm out of ideas of what to plant--just scatter and see what happens. So I did, and it grew like it was supposed to. For a while I thought the plants were more corn and was wondering why I planted so much corn! Then the seeds became apparent and I remembered what it was.

Now I'm wondering why I planted it...aside from the initial charming idea of making my own broom. Uh, yeah, I was daydreaming of making my own broom. What of it?! And don't tell me you don't daydream of brush making.

Call me a garden geek if you want, but you'll be all sorts of jealous of my beautiful broom.

If you do make a broom, I'm definitely interested in the process and end result!

uhhh... I've daydreamed about growing broom corn for the same reason. Garden-geeks 4evr. ;) Also, I like your dishwasher soap post. I'll have to try that soon. It seems like we're on the same wavelength or something.

you can use sorghum flour in gluten free baked goods recipes. i made a chocolate cake with it the other night.
