It's about time for avid gardeners to get their spring plantings in the ground so that they'll have beautiful flowers and delicious home-grown vegetables all summer. Gardeners with kids might want to get them a Plant-Me Pet, a goofy-looking toy made of biodegradable latex with plant seeds for eyes. They can be played with for a while, and then, when the child tires of them, planted headfirst in fertile soil, and in a while, ta-da! A plant will sprout. Available in pumpkin, melon, and tomato varieties. $22 USD.
