I saw a small group of adlai grass near the sidewalk. I bet no one planted it so I hurriedly picked the grains. It was a dark night, I can barely see the grain colors. I was not able to finish cause a dog came barking at me.
The next day I inspected all the grains I gathered. They were mixture of immature and matured grains. The immature green was hard but can be cracked in between teeth. The next grains were so hard. I pounded them with a hard object to crack open.
My hammering was not careful enough so all cotyledons were damaged. Besides, I cannot found ways to open it without damaging the edible portion.
The following are pictures of adlai grains. Please tell me which is the right color for harvest! Sorry for the blurred pictures!
