Nobody messes with …



Yes. Thanks to Neatorama, I found out that there is such a thing as a plantable comic book. They contain two seed-infused sheets of paper, with either herbs (The Gardener) and wildflowers (April Showers).  The idea is to make comic books more sustainable, but it’s kind of symbolic because there are just the two sheets—the standard 24 pages would be too expensive.

Still. A cute idea and I love the graphics.

They can be found (classified under “growing kits") at Sprout Home.

  1. Love this idea! It also sounds like a neat gift for a young budding gardener. Is there a storyline, maybe something to follow seasonally or subscribe to? that would be fun.
