Egg shells are great containers in which to start seedlings for your garden. Start collecting egg shells by cracking the eggs near the top in order to keep the bottom half whole. Once you have stored enough eggs, fill them with dirt, and plant a few seeds into each egg. Each seed package has directions on the back that explains how to plant the seed, what temperature it prefers and how long it takes to grow. Generally, if you plant them about 1/8″ deep, and keep them moist and warm they will all grow.
The above plants include: oregano, purple basil, Italian parsley, white allysum, pink allysum, Johnny jump up (viola), marine heliotrope, marigold brocade mix and chives.
Note: My seedlings (shown above) are getting crowded and should be transplanted into larger pots so that they have more room to grow.
