Over Christmas, I bought a Chia Pet. I thought it would be a fun project for the kids and me. My son, Jake, helped me with the beginning steps but then he gave a “peace out.” I had never grown a Chia Pet before. I had no idea it was this long and complicated a process…. but keep in mind, I can also be dumb sometimes. The following is my experience with growing a Chia Pet… a cautionary tale if you will.
