My weed pulling this past summer took a 2 month hiatus. This resulted in a plethora of mature weeds. Had these adult volunteers along the driveway.

After searching the web for weeds that look like corn, I am fairly confident that it is Sorghum bicolor (millet or milo). Very attractive food crop (not weed).

Milo seeds are commonly found in most birdseed mixes. And yes, I was feeding birds in that area! My normal method of feeding birds is to grow plants that provide food, but sometimes I just set a bowl of seed out on the driveway:)

I agree, looks a lot like Sorghum Bicolor: Grain Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor)

Yes, it seems you are a Sorghum farmer.
