There's something so satisfying about growing things yourself. Planting a seed, tending it, and watching it flourish provides such a sense of accomplishment: "I made that!" But alas, successful gardening usually requires—crucial detail!—an actual gardener. And not everyone is in possession of that skill. A green thumb is a gift, but a black thumb is far more common, unfortunately.

How, then, to get that all-important pop of floral fabulousness on your windowsill? Or the even-more-important fresh-cut herbs for your summer cocktails? Modern Sprout to the rescue. This company, founded by "two regular thumb-colored people" in their "yard-less" Chicago home, has figured out a way to make growing your own flowers and herbs completely foolproof, and adorable to boot: Its mason-jar growing kits feature self-watering technology, meaning all you do is fill them with water and let the hydroponic "wicking" system do all the work. In no time at all, you'll have gorgeously colorful blooms or fresh, fragrant herbs, with a very high feel-good factor for practically zero effort. Great job!
