The landscape and weather reminds us that spring has not yet arrived. However, it's not too early to plant and nurture seeds indoors.
Interested in an easy, natural, and inexpensive way to give your seeds and plants a head start and enrich your garden and flower beds at planting time? If you have a greenhouse, a sunny window or a grow light, you can begin planting and growing seeds indoors now, to transplant later in your kitchen garden.
What you'll need:
empty egg cartons (seed starter tray)
egg shell, halves (plant seed cups)
potting soil or plant medium
Eggshells are organic, biodegradable plant pots that add calcium, nitrogen, and phosphoric acid to your garden soil. Eggshells are also useful as a snail deterrent, protecting tender garden plants.
So, who's planting eggs in their garden bed this spring?
