Crack The Egg and Use The Shell: Gardening Fun For The Family

 

bigstock-Fresh-Start-5884688

The egg shell is the best container to “start a seed.”

You and your child can start your seeds in an egg. If you take half of an egg shell, poke a small hole in the bottom, and fill it with soil – your seed can be poked into the soil and water as usual. You can set this egg “plant” in the egg carton and settle it on a windowsill and watch the seedling grow.  Once the plant has grown – the entire egg shell can be placed into the ground for outdoor planting!   More tips for starting seeds in egg shells.

So don’t toss any more egg shells. Use them as a fun family project and feed your garden with them instead.
