Happy Earth Day! Get Yourself an Edible Miniature Garden

This Sunday, April 22, marks the 38th annual Earth Day and one of the tips that FitSugar recommends to be healthy and green at the same time is to "eat local fruits and vegetables." I'm all for eating locally, but I don't think it gets much more local than your own backyard. I personally don't have much of a green thumb and need all the help I can get (although I actually brought an almost dead tree back to life last summer!). However, I think I've found something that even the blackest of thumbs can manage. This miniature edible indoor garden is just the perfect size and needs little maintenance (just some water). I think it will look so cute on my desk (which is a bonus, because if it's on my desk I probably won't forget to water it). It comes with the interesting structure, four reusable felt pads with seed packets (clover, cress, lettuce and mustard) and a packet refill. All you have to do is provide the water and you're in business. Oh and it'll look adorable next to these little egglings. Happy Earth Day!

That's still not too bad. I might have some room on my desk if I could just clear it a little bit!

ALSW - I'm not really sure how big it is, I'm imagining it to be relatively small since it's meant for your desk. Here's another page with more information (a good picture too). It says 4.5" square - I think that means each thing, but I'm not sure...

i always plant something on earth day, last year i planted pumpkins and now i have about 5 big ones in my garden, this year i think i'll plant a papaia tree. I once gave my dog some papaia seeds and she pooped in the soil, now i have a huge papaia tree with very sweet papaias! :rotfl: no joke!
