Egglings: Plant Seeds in Egg Shells

I can’t think of many things cuter than plants sprouting inside of egg shells. They are perfect to have around the house at Easter time, but the shells also have a practical purpose making it easy to transplant seedlings into the garden later.

For our contribution this month to Raising Arizona Kids magazine we shared all the details on how to start cucumber seedlings in shells. Of course the info is tailored to our Phoenix climate, but most of the information applies generally. If you have questions, we recommend an outing to your local nursery. Nursery workers are usually very helpful, and our kids love getting to see all the plants.

We planted beans in shells for Earth Day a few years ago and created a time lapse of them sprouting that you simply must see. Then head over to RaisingArizonaKids.com for all the details on starting your own crop of cucumbers.
