Green Life in a Tube

Those NASA scientists have been busy. Their late 2006 invention was a special gel (perhaps magic gel?) that allows seeds to grow within glasstubes. On the market it is known as the Plantarium Single Vial Garden Lab ($10). At seven inches tall, you can select from a variety of seeds: basil, melon, marigold, pepper, sunflower and tomato. Most of those sound like good toppings for a sustainable, low embodied energy pizza!
