From the Cute-but-impractical File: Egglings (from Japan) look and feel like a real egg, but are made of white porous ceramic. Kids (or adults!) just crack it open, add water and sun… and voila! Basil, thyme or Italian parsley at your fingertips.

Plants grow for up to five months in the eggling’s fortified peat mixture, and can then be moved them to your garden or window box.

But it begs the question, doesn’t it? Why not just use real eggshells? Let Martha show you how.
