Start Seeds Indoors … With Your Garbage
Cracked EggshellsThis project is especially fun for kids because it looks like magic (little plants growing out of eggs?!) and it’s downright adorable. You can reuse an empty egg carton to hold your eggshell “pots” and start a whole herb garden on your windowsill this way. The eggshell method is best for smaller seeds such as basil, cilantro, parsley, and dill.
You want eggshells that have been cracked right in the middle so you have two halves. Wash and dry the shells, then place them in an egg carton. Fill each eggshell with a little moist soil, then sow your seeds according to the seed packet’s instructions. Use a spray bottle to lightly spritz the surface of the soil whenever it looks dry.
As your seedling outgrows its pot, you can crack the shell ever so slightly and transplant the entire thing into your garden. The eggshell provides extra calcium to the soil!
