This has been growing in my new lasagna-bed. I am not sure what it is! Any thoughts? Confused Shrug!

The birds here like to grow their own sorghum and corn. Is it near a birdfeeder?

thanks, Dave and Porkpal! I definitely did not plant sorghum, but there's no telling what the birds might have dropped! My birdfeeder is on the other side of the yard, but I guess that never stopped a determined seed from travelling! Hilarious!

thanks, Kidfishing--it does have the shape of Johnson grass, but it is much bigger with much thicker stems and leaves!

So it is sorghum?

Sorghum for sure. Scroll down to see a photo of the stem and leaves ..

Sorghum has a thick stalk and leaves that remind you of Corn. Sorghums have a wide white midrib on the leaf.

Yes, I would leave it to make seeds, birds like fresh food.
