Eggshell Garden

To start a garden, you will need: potting soil, clean empty eggshell halves, an empty egg carton, and flower or vegetable seeds.

  1. Fill the eggshells three-quarters full of soil and place them in the egg carton.

  2. Plant a seed in each shell. Put the egg carton near a sunny window and keep the soil moist.

  3. After the seeds sprout and have formed several leaves, plant them in a larger pot or outside (if there is no danger of frost).
