This spring season, recycle your cracked eggshells by using them as adorable, and earth-friendly, starter pots!  Just poke a few drainage holes in the bottom of a clean, empty shell with a needle, fill with soil, then sow and tend seeds according to packet instructions.  Once your seedlings are ready to be transplanted outside, you can even work the calcium-rich shell shards right into the dirt!

Kristin - I can NOT believe that I've never heard of this before!!!  What a GREAT idea!!!  I wish I'd know about this a month ago.  I've already planted my lettuce varities, peas & cukes.  Had to put a blanket on them last night....got really chilly here again ;-(

Kristin-I knew that eggs shells were good compost for the garden but had never heard about using them as seed starters. Great idea. Have a successful day.
