That looks like cat barf and I'm not saying that's wrong.

But won't you damage the little guys when you stomp this?  ;)  Just kidding! This is so nuts I hope it will stand the test of time. I have never seen a truer definition of earthy, organic fuzz!

Ch-ch-ch-chia!

Next time, I'll grow a geranium germanium fuzz.   ;D

It will have a limited life, but I can keep replanting.  Fun fact:  a mature chia plant is 1.5--2m tall.

So... You'll be needing one of those 2m stomp switch extensions then?  ;D

Glad that my concrete enclosure played a small part in this.

I'm not 100% sure how I should be interpreting that.  Does it mean that you don't like any of my builds, with this one being your least favorite?  ???

Not at all! I think my humor was lost in translation here. Itís a quote and photo from a movie and was meant to be playfully funny.  Itís my way of saying:  that is so silly but so TOTALLY AWESOME at the same time.  I  love it!  :)

I can see how you might take this wrong but I'm sure it wasn't meant that way! It's just such a senselessly fun idea! I think it's about time we see a progress pic!

I'll take another pic tonight.  Hopefully it has grown noticeably.

Here is a pic from a water damage check yesterday.  I'm not sure how I feel about my LED choice, but I think it will look better once the sprouts are taller and darker green.

More importantly, despite all the watering, the pedal still works so far!

I'm watering the plants using a plastic medicine syringe now.  It allows me to keep the water out of the critical areas above the threaded bushings of the switch and pots.

I started these seeds on February 18th, by the way.

No new pics today.  Still looks mostly the same.  If anything, it looks slightly less healthy.  Hopefully, it will perk back up once the latest watering gets absorbed.

And here I thought I would win the crazyness award once I post about rolling capacitors. You take the win, chapeau!  ;D

I'll take credit for crazy. 

On the topic of rolling capacitor crazy, I've made capacitors out of aluminum flashing and an engineering textbook somewhat recently (a single page of the textbook was my dielectric).  Started to venture into making a capacitor out of a mylar birthday balloon, but got distracted by other projects (like this one).  ;D

At this point, you may have to break down and setup a 24/7 webcam so we can all track progress.
