Chocolate is a delicious treat. I feel in heaven when I eat fine dark chocolate. But let’s face it; we often eat too much chocolate at Easter. I find you a greener Easter gift idea that will be fun for the kids and the grown ups.
I first learned about Eggling a while ago when planting in crackable egg shaped pots became popular in Japan. I forgot about it. A post from design*sponge spreads the words about three new varieties of egglings, just in time for spring: spicy red pepper, lavender and wild strawberries. Great addition to their current plant variety. My heart goes to the herb varieties: basil, Italian parsley, mint, thyme. Four more flowers are also available.
Eggling looks and feels like an extra large egg, you just crack its top and you discover a garden ready to grow! Plants grow for up to five months in the Eggling, after which transplant it directly in soil or a pot. Egglink is sold for $9.95 USD or $11 CAD.
I cultivate my own cooking herbs on my terrace. When fall temperature is mild, I got fresh herbs until November. Nothing taste better than freshly cut herbs in salads or when you cooking a recipe. Even if you do not get the Eggling, go to your local market or your local garden center to buy herb plants this year.
