Now you can create your own crop circle without either stealth or extraterrestrial assistance.
All you need are skills approximately equivalent to tending a Chia Pet.
Writer Lou Harry and his collaborator, Bob Staake, have created My Crop Circle, a desktop version of what some people consider a paranormal phenomenon and others laugh off as an elaborate hoax. It's a kit that contains a growing medium and a tray to hold it, grass seeds, five crop circle templates and 48 pages of not-entirely-serious instructions.
If you want to try to convince your friends that aliens landed on your desk, feel free.
My Crop Circle sells for $9.95 and is available at some bookstores. It's produced by Cider Mill Press.
