How-To: Eggshell Seedlings
Starting vegetables from seed is the most cost-effective way to create a garden, and it's rewarding to watch your seeds grow. Learn how to start your seeds indoors while doing a little recycling/reusing at the same time.
What You'll Need:
Prep The Egg
Empty The Eggs
Don't Forget The Drainage
Add The Soil
Water The Soil
Plant The Seeds
Find an Ideal Spot, Maintain, Then Transplant
Water your seeds regularly and watch for your sprouts to come up. Once they come up, remove the plastic wrap and keep them in a sunny spot.
Here's the cool part: Once your seeds have sprouted (and after you've admired your handiwork for a few days) you can take the pre-sprouted egg/seed and plant the whole thing directly into your garden. The seed will break the eggshell with its roots as it grows, and the extra calcium from the eggshell will make for a strong and healthy plant.
