In the spirit of yesterday’s post, I want to share with you a great gardening tip that I read in “Real Simple” magazine in the eye doctor’s waiting room the other day.
Empty egg shells can be used as containers for seed starts! Just fill the egg with soil from the garden and plant your seed. When you ready to transfer to the garden you can plant the whole egg shell — it will decompose in the soil, nourishing your little plant and the surrounding soil. The egg-seed starters can rest in the egg carton while they’re growing. When I get back from a trip at the end of August I plan to start some beet seeds in my little egg shells.
