The Root Vue Farm is a self-watering grow unit with a special viewing window so kids can watch roots develop underground. Watch carrot, radish, and onion seeds grow up as their roots grow down. The complete kit includes a durable styrofoam growing unit with acrylic viewing window, built-in water basin and drainage reservoir. A light shield keeps plants growing but can be removed for viewing roots.

For the garden - outgrown wellies as planters "Put drainage holes in the bottom of the boots. I used my husband's power drill and drilled four or five 1/4 inch holes through the soles and then for hanging the boots I drilled another hole on the backside of the boot up at the top and hung them on the fence using those little cup hooks you can get anywhere they sell screws :) If you can't find the little cup hooks you could also use a regular nail and just hammer the end crooked so it turns up a bit on the end to prevent the boot from slipping off" - brilliant idea!
