Do you have chia seeds in your pantry that you sprinkle on salads, add to smoothies or mix into sauces to give whatever you're eating a health boost? Well, the same seeds you eat can also successfully grow in your backyard as a beautiful, flowering plant. Chia seeds germinate easily and grow quickly. When they bloom, they turn to seed, which birds love to eat. Just leave the flowers to dry out, and the birds will feed from them.
