How to Grind Eggshells and Store the Powder
To transform eggshells into a fine powder, you can use a variety of tools such as a mixer, pestle and mortar, or a blender. After grinding them to the desired size, store the powder in an airtight container. Fine powder helps ensure better absorption by your plants.
When and How to Use Eggshells in a Garden
To allow enough time for eggshells to absorb, it's best to till them into the soil immediately before and after the growing season. You can also combine eggshells with organic matter, such as coffee grounds, to promote healthy growth in new planting rows. Some folks also sprinkle them around plants throughout the growing season to deter pests.
As you might have guessed by now, eggshells serve many purposes around the home. Of course, you can make fertilizer, but you can also create eggshell planters and repurpose egg cartons. Learn about more ways to make the most of Rosemary Farm eggs by reading our latest blogs and staying stocked.
