Just like Obama's current state of affairs, Chia Obama had some setbacks this morning. While the instructions stated a shower cap might do Obama's growth some good, I failed to take into account the general abundance of humidity in San Francisco. A double humidity whammy if you will. I came in to work to find strange sperm-like seeds oozing down the back of Obama's neck. It was kind of gross.
I fear bald spots on Obama's "determined" bust.
On the up side, the sperms are growing tails, so I'm doing something right. Unfortunately, I can't find my real camera, so the camera phone shots are all I have and they don't do close-ups.
Later today, I'm going to seive the water in the tray for extra seeds in hopes I can replace them on his head. The good thing with Obama Chia (and probably the real Obama) is, the seed packet provided more than a second chance. I could be growing head sprouts all winter, if I so chose.
