Domestic Science: An Herb Seed Kit

August 13, 2012

I find it almost irresistible, in a science-lab-at-home kind of way, to open a slim metal tin to find lidded containers of seeds inside.

The Herb Seed Kit from PLANT in Brooklyn, with ten varieties to grow on the window sill, does not disappoint:

Above: The little Herb Seed Kit comes with approximately 100 seeds apiece to grow basil, dill, sage, mint, marjoram, oregano, thyme, arugula, curly parsley, and flat-leaf parsley. Also, there are flash cards with instructions for care, and pre-labeled wooden garden markers for each herb. The kit is $18.

Above: The kits are assembled in upstate Poughkeepsie by adults at the Mid-Hudson Workshop for the Disabled, where the goal is to provide meaningful work for the Mid-Hudson New York area’s disabled population.

Above: The instructional flash cards propel me right back to science class, circa 1975. If you’re listening, PLANT of Brooklyn, next please design a kit that comes with a glass funnel and eye dropper.
