A Kitchen Garden You Can Sprout on a Countertop

Michelle Slatalla May 28, 2013

A tiny, compact system for growing just the right amount of herbs and sprouts on your kitchen windowsill? That’s the idea behind a new Kitchen Farming line of ingeniously sized terracotta planters from Swedish design firm Cult Design. Says chief designer Marita Lord, “Kids think it’s great to get to see small seeds become something edible.” We do, too.

Above: Introduced recently at the International Housewares Show in Chicago, the Kitchen Farming line has pots, planters, and seed-sprouting boxes in a variety of sizes and configurations to fit neatly on your kitchen counter. For more information and pricing, see Cult Design.

Above: The Evergreen series is a system of self-watering countertop planters. An absorbent pad at the bottom of the post provides water to the roots of seedlings. Refill with water about once a week. For pricing and more information, see Cult Design.

Above: Terra cotta boxes to sprout seeds are designed to allow you to pour water over the seeds once a day to rinse and refresh them. You can expect sprouts in from three to seven days.
