Egg Shells

Sep. 2, 2011 No Comments Posted under: Gardening Tips

Egg shells add calcium and carbon to your soil and they are great for tomatoes. Put egg shells in a gallon of water (a jug that you can seal) and water your plants.  When water is all gone, empty the shells and start all over again. Boiling takes lots of minerals from the shells so cool the water and use it for your house plants…right away otherwise you’ll get a stinky odor…yikes.  Add crushed clean egg shells to bird feeders, this will add calcium to the birds and helps them sharpen their beaks.  Slugs don’t like crushed egg shells, so use them under your hostas…
