How to Grow Your Own Eggling Garden
I was looking for some creative ways to garden this year while getting my little ones involved and discovered the Eggling Garden over at sixcleversisters.com! Egglings are an easy, low-maintenance way to grow seeds into “seedlings” and prepare them for planting and they look absolutely wonderful in all stages of the process!
Step 1: You will need to collect eggshells in advance and ensure they are carefully washed and dried before you use them. If you are careful with your egg cracking, you can use two nearly equal halves from each eggshell. Poke a small hole in the bottom of each shell carefully to allow for drainage. A toothpick or a pin works well for this!
Step 2: Fill your eggshell half to three quarters full with the organic soil in the burlap bag inside your kit. (The burlap bag of course, is reusable and the soil bag inside is compostable). The calcium from the shell will promote the young plant’s growth and keep it healthy.
Step 3: Take a small object like a chopstick and poke the dirt down making 2 holes, adding 1-2 seeds in each hole, cover hole with soil and push down gently.
Step 4: Water so the soil is moist and watch your seedlings grow! Water every 1-2 days or enough to keep the soil moist.
Step 5: When the plant reaches three inches, transfer the entire egg (crumble the shell a bit first) to a pot of soil or to your garden!
