Seedheads for the Birds
I am experimenting by sprouting the various seeds in the birdseed mix other than sunflower to see if I can get the birds to eat the seeds in the natural state. So far I have grasslike sprouts with nice brown seedheads and something that has leaves like corn but the seedleads again are more grasslike and certainly not corn. I also tried Wheat which is now nice and brown. None of the birds around the garden are paying any attention to my intended natural bird buffet. It seems to me that the birds must eat seeds in the natural growing state like this. Do they not recognize something new? Need to wait until the snow flies?
I let the Buckwheat in my veggie garden go to seed and do see birds flying in there all the time but don't know if they are eating the Buckwheat.
