    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).
