Getting ready for spring

I saw on Facebook that spring is just 55 days away.
I have not had much success with growing vegetables, so far, but this year I am going to try starting my plants from seeds in the house. 
This is a plate of eggshells that will be used for little starter pots. 
It's easy, just crack your egg carefully on the side of a bowl, just below the pointy end and kind of keep cracking in a circle until the end is off. Use the inside egg for whatever you are cooking. Rinse out the egg shells and let dry. 

As cold and harsh as this winter is, I don't expect any early planting outdoors will survive. So hopefully my plants will get a good start indoors and be strong and hardy when spring finally gets here.

  1. I'll be interested to see how your seedlings do. I only have two windows where I think seedlings might get enough sun, but all my houseplants are in front of those windows!

  4. I agree with Lena. Spring? Where? My question is WHEN????? I have a garden every year but have never used the egg shells to start the seeds. The shells should help the soil when planted. Hope that it works!

    1. Your right, I think the shells are supposed to help feed the plants.
