Campbell's Soup goes do-it-yourself

A Japanese company is offering a seed version of the Campbell's soup tins. The seeds come in a tin that looks exactly the same as the original one except the word "soup" is replaced by "seeds". Inside are layers of soil, written instructions and a choice of seeds to grow miniature tomatoes, miniature pumpkins or green peas.

"We would like customers to enjoy growing plants and making the dishes they like with vegetables, not necessarily just to make soup," said Machiko Endo, from World Flower Service.

The cans cost 997 yen (9.25 dollars) at shops or 1,627 yen (15 dollars) by delivery. Which is not very cheap if you think that you have to do all the work yourself.
