Here's a pencil that you can plant to grow tomatoes, basil and peppers

Sprout is a line of eco-friendly pencils that can be planted after use. When the mixture of graphite and clay runs out or if the pencil becomes too short to write with, just place it in soil (preferably near natural sunlight) and water it regularly. After a few weeks, a dissolvable seed capsule at the end of the pencil will germinate, transforming it into one of twelve herbs and vegetables such as basil, mint, cherry tomatoes, green pepper or sweet pea.
