At Home

egg carton

Maine-based mom Jes Antonis sent us this sweet spring garden activity. We can’t wait to do it this weekend!

“Use egg shells to start your seedlings on the windowsill, bringing a touch of green inside for spring. when they have grown enough transplant to your garden…shell and all!

First planting of seedlings: a few seeds for each eggshell to be thinned later.

Ready to grow—put in a sunny spot for the best results. This entire thing can go right in the ground—to be thinned as everything comes in, or just place the shells with seedlings about 4-6 inches apart.”
