Overalls Not Included

You know how to empty a wine bottle, don't you? Of course you do. Well, that's just the beginning of the fun with our Bottle Stopper Garden Kit. Once that wine is dispensed with, fill the bottle with water, plug the neck with one of the three hydroponic "smart soil" capsules, drop in some herb seeds (sweet basil, purple basil, and lemon balm are included), and put it in a sunny spot. Your work is now done. You don't even water this little crop: just watch the everyday magic of germination and growth.

In somewhere between three days and two weeks, tiny seedlings will appear. Gradually, their roots will extend down the bottle, absorbing the dissolved nutrients from the capsule. Before you know it, full-sized leaves will appear. Within a few weeks, it's harvest time. Pluck some delectable, aromatic leaves, and add them to dinner—accompanied by wine. Made in New York.

location

Nathan Littlewood and Robert Elliott met at Columbia University, and immediately bonded over their shared vision for building a healthier, more sustainable food system. Nate had just left the finance industry, determined to build something that his grandchildren would one day be proud of. He has been obsessed with food since childhood, and has taken cooking classes all over the world, including Toronto, where he received a Certificate of Culinary Arts. Rob was raised on a wood farm in south eastern Massachusetts, and since moving to New York City has made it his mission to make the place a bit greener. His PhD dissertation focused on vegetated infrastructure, and after meeting Nate, he began to use his plant knowledge to design food growing systems. As well as running R&D, manufacturing, and dispatch at Bottle Stopper Garden Kit HQ, he has also become famous for his “Upper Westo Pesto” (fortunately, he has a very good supply of fresh basil).

These made the best hostess gift for the supper/wine club that we attend. All of those in attendance wanted to know where I got them! On another occasion the recipient used them as a centerpiece on her table and got a lot of comments on how unique they were.
