I used to grow a few dozen sunflower seeds in polystyrene cups, give one each to all the neighbours kids and award prizes for the tallest, the biggest flower and the best specimen. It got so seriously competitive and people used to resort to underhand tactics and sabotage so I had to stop. Kids being kids you might think? No, it was their parents.
