Buddy Friday - Starting seeds in eggshells...........



I bought a magazine called Back Home the other day and it had an article in it called "Egging on the Garden." It basically said you can start growing seeds in empty eggshells filled with soil. I thought that was a neat idea. The writer also said that you can put the soil filled eggshells into a bread bag and then you have a mini greenhouse, to encourage the seeds to grow.

I googled this and was surprised on how many links there were. Here are a couple of them for you to check out:
