For those of you wondering, I am still waiting on my new camera and equipment to arrive. Grrrrr. It might be time to start praying to St. Anthony, but I'll keep you posted.
Anyway, it's the perfect time of year to start your planting, if you haven't done so already. And if you like planting seeds, or have never tried and want to, then this is the perfect time to start that as well. And don't worry about fussing with all the seed starter containers, because Monogram Momma has an even better solution to starting your seeds: eggshells. So open up the fridge and start cracking some eggs because whether you're starting rosemary or roses, this is the perfect solution to seed starting.
You Will Need
-seeds (either flowers, fruits, or veggies)
-spray water bottle
1) crack your eggs as close to the top as you can, and put aside egg innards for cooking later
2) fill empty egg up about 3/4 of the way with potting soil.
3) drop in seed
4) top off with some additional soil
5) feed the seed and soil by spraying with your spray bottle
6) put back into egg carton to start growing and leave in the sun
Now, the thing I really love about starting my seeds this way is because you never have to remove the little sprout from the egg starter. Why, you ask? Simple! Planting the eggshell in the ground will provide additional nutrients for the soil, and it will also completely dissintegrate (for those of you earth consious folks out there).
This is also a great little project for kids, even small ones. I did this last Spring when the Mini's were 4 and 2-1/2 and it was great for both of them. Of course, you can see here they were a little messy with the soil, but still, they really enjoyed the entire process and had fun watching them grow.
