a quick tip
just a quick tip for today.
don't forget to save your eggshells for use in the garden. crushed eggshells provide a great source of calcium for your plants. tomatoes, in particular, love the extra calcium. the crushed eggshells also provide a deterrent to garden pests such as slugs. a win-win, right?
before using them, you need to bake the eggshells in the oven for about 10 minutes. let cool and then crush them around the base of your plants.
do you use eggshells in your garden? if not, give it a try.
