Save egg shells for your planting

Start now to save your empty egg shells to add to your starter plants for the spring or in the garden when you make holes to plant flowers or other plants.  The egg shells will give drainage in any pots and will provide nutrition to your plants in pots or the garden.  The shells can be collected in a container, bag, jar or anything that is open so that they dry and don't mold or become “sour”.  When you are ready to use them for planting, first soak them in a container with water.  After a day or 2 the water will become “milky” colored and is ready to be used to water your plants and offer free fertilizer, calcium, protein, and nutrition for the plants.  Now take the shells to your planting area and use them once more as noted at the beginning of this paragraph.  Happy gardening!!
