Egg Shell Slug Deterrent

Save your egg shells from your favorite recipe to help out your garden. Crush your clean egg shells into small, but not powdered pieces, and spread them around the base of your plants. Slugs will not go over them because of the texture of the shells.

Egg shells are also great plant food for roses (I knew a guy that when he planted new roses in his garden would put a couple of Tums in the planting hole!) and they prevent blossom end rot in your tomatoes. I just put my shells in the garden and my goofy pug dogs are eating them. What clowns!! I always rinse the shells right away and let them dry fully then crush them in a small plastic container with a lid. Easy schmeezy!
