Quick follow-up. I did post about foxtail millet, though since its purpose is to raise awareness, it is not very deep. See: http://donosborn.org/blog/?p=132

In the process of research on this, have gotten a bit better handle on foxtail millet (Setaria italica) and proso (Panicum miliaceum), which I hadn't known as well as the other two of the four I'm highlighting (all 4 are cultivated to one degree or another and for one purpose or another in China).

One question along the way regards glutinous variety(ies) of foxtail: Is 糯小米 (nuò xiǎomǐ), seen in packages at the local Great Wall, equivalent to 黏谷 (nián gŭ), as seen in Francesca Bray's JATBA article?

TIA, Don Osborn
