It may technically be Spring but most of us are still waiting for the warm weather, with a long list of things we want to do after we can finally put the winter coats away. We also get a lot of products sent to us to taste, test and play with here at the 101st floor of TBF worldwide international headquarters, as we like to call it. We recently were sent Sprout Pencils and were intrigued by both the concept and the fact that it is a local company.
Here's how they work. You get a set of pencils which you can use to scribble down your notes, ideas and dreams and after you have worked it down to the stub you plant it and up grows herbs you can then use. Food from a pencil! I had to admit that it was one of the more unusual products we have ever received. So, as we go about our daily work of writing and dreaming of the warm weather we're hoping it won't be too long before we can plant our pencils and see what sprouts up.
