That's the little black seeds isn't it. I might be better off weeding them out to let the millet take over then. Any idea what the other smaller leafed seedlings are?

I would think that as seeding grass "the little black seeds" would be good tucker.

If you want good seeding grasses, take out all those canola seeds as they'll choke out all the other grasses
