Get your garden started early by planting your seeds in eggshells indoors before the weather permits outdoor growth. There are several reasons why eggshells are the perfect pot for this, but the biggest is that they are cheap (free really), full of calcium to give your seedlings that extra boost, and easy to plant in the garden when ready (the shell can stay on!).
Cada vez que romper un huevo abierto, en lugar de tirar la cáscara a la basura, soltarlo en un recipiente abierto que se mantiene en la nevera. Cuando el contenedor está lleno, aplastar las conchas en pequeños trozos y espolvorear alrededor de la base de sus plantas. Las cáscaras de huevo afilados disuadirá a las babosas, caracoles y otros bichos de mordisqueando su jardín y añadir un toque de calcio al suelo.
Tomatoes need calcium to achieve their full flavor potential, and calcium is often greatly lacking in our soils. 95% of a dry eggshell is calcium carbonate. When planting your tomato plants crush up (to powder) about 4 or 5 egg shells and put them in the bottom of the hole. Then plant your tomato on top. They provide calcium and prevent blossom end rot.
3. Give Your Garden A Calcium Boost My blender rarely sees daylight, but now it might just get the chance to see the kitchen counter with this genius tip! I’m starting to understand the idea behind compost a little more now that I’m dabbling in the garden, so this just makes a lot of sense to me. Just like grinding your food makes it easier to digest, grinding eggshells makes it easy for your garden to absorb the calcium egg shells provide.
