Here’s a great idea to teach kids about gardening and cooking. It’s the Eggling , an ingenious little idea that originated in Japan.

The Eggling looks and feels like a real egg (it’s actually made of porous ceramic), but when you crack its top, you see a garden ready for planting! It comes with a terra cotta tray, and in addition to the basil version you see to the right, you can surf the related products listings on Amazon to find all other kinds of herbs and flowers.

Plants grow for up to five months indoors, and after that you can plant the whole Eggling outside. Each comes in a gift box.

Chia Herb Garden

Okay, sing with with me: “ch-ch-ch-chia!”

That’s right, the same people who made the incredible sprouting ram, pig, puppy, and Scooby-Doo have introduced Chia Herb Garden Fresh Herbs.

The Chia company combined their patented growing sponge with terra cotta pots and saucers and seeds for curled parsley, dill, chives, basil, cilantro and marjoram. The kit also includes six plant markers, complete, easy-to-follow instructions, recipes and helpful hints.

Reviews have been mixed. Some report amazing results, while others say that seeds never sprout. This is probably because when kits like this are mass-produced, they sit in a warehouse for months at a time, and of course that can affect the seeds.
