Using Eggshells In Your Garden - crushed shells around ornamental kaleNext time you crack open your eggs, do not be so quick to throw them away! Eggs are so rich with vitamins and calcium, that is contained in the shell. By simply crushing or grinding up these shells, and adding them to your vegetable garden, it will provide many nutrients that may be lacking in your soil. Add to compost. My personal favorite use in the garden is to deter slugs, snails, and cutworms. They stay away, leaving you with uneaten flowers, plants, and vegetables. Just sprinkle around your planting areas.
