Shown here is the eggling I spotted in a hot San Francisco gallery one afternoon last week. All these tiny egglings need is a tap on the top, place in the sun, and a spot of water each day.
This is the absolute perfect gift for that green-thumb co-worker that is having a lunch birthday this Spring. Also, if you’ve always wanted a kitchen herb garden, build a little shelf for them, or line up these eggs on a windowsill for quick and fresh spice snips on sandwiches, salads and sautés.This makes a great party-favor for a festive picnic birthday for kids of all ages. Add this one to the list of fun and simple ways to garden.

These are adorable!
Another great kid- friendly activity your readers would enjoy is to grow a TickleMe Plant from seeds and then watching the plant MOVE when Tickled! As a first grade teacher I no longer plant Lima beans, as the growing of this interactive plant, proved to be much more exciting and educational for my student’s.
I found my supplies for a classroom kit at http://www.ticklemeplant.com but they also sell individual greenhouses and even party favors, with everything you need to grow your own TickleMe Plant from seeds. I assure you your kids will be more excited about gardening, and its just fun to watch the expressions of the faces of children (and even adults) when they see the plant close its leaves and droop when tickled,
My daughter was just desperate for one of those for Easter. We didn’t end up getting any, but they sure are cute.
