It’s working! (starting seedlings in eggshells)

eggshelltrays 001Wow! I didn’t expect to see confirmation of the effectiveness of this method so fast… but I’m already seeing my seedlings begin to sprout (after only 5 days)!

Little shoots and leaves of green are already peeking up. Now I wish I’d kept collecting eggshells so I could start yet another tray! Thought I’d share a little photo in case you were on the fence about whether or not to start your seedlings in eggshells. It really does work. Crazy.

Next maybe I’ll try toilet paper rolls or newspaper (as suggested by the Editors at Garden Variety). I really want to go as natural and recyclable as possible this year – particularly because the hubby and I are becoming increasingly interested in permaculture and sustainable practices/systems. I’ll be sure to keep you posted. 😉
