Eggshells

Crush your eggshells and put them in the bottom of planting holes in the garden – Two really cool reasons:

1) A lot of veggies (tomatoes, peppers, etc…) need calcium to achieve full flavor potential and a lot of soil (in america especially) is lacking in calcium… this is a GREAT way to supplement

2) They deter Slugs and Snails from eating your seedlings at the root. They have soft undersides and can’t slither across anything sharp.

P.S. – If you have a couple “big” shells around. You can plant the seeds IN the empty egg shell then plant the whole thing in the ground… kinda like the tip from a couple days ago with the citrus fruits 🙂
