Eggshell sprouts!

I am so excited for my yearly garden. Now that we're on a big chunk of land I don't need to decide what I want to grow, I can throw as much as I want to down and let it fly! Not only is it a good, healthy choice for us but there are countless learning opportunities for Charlie once he's old enough. I'd like my boy to grow up respecting the land and the work people put into it and to give back more than he takes from it. This is such a cute little project for those just starting to learn about how things grow. It makes use of things we would normally throw away and teaches a recycle/repurpose lesson at the same time.

    Well, this is our first year with a giant garden so I'm not sure I have a favorite. Last year I made the mistake of throwing down 2 whole packages of zucchini because they were old seeds and I was afraid they wouldn't take. lol we had zucchini coming out of our ears.. couldn't even give them away anymore. I dried some, canned some, we ate them every night, shredded and vacuum packed some.. I finally had to stop picking them and just let everything die off. This year if that happens with anything we'll take the surplus to the food bank.

    I have a dozen varieties of peppers this year. I'm most excited about that :)

    I think I'll keep in mind that you are a zucchini-usage expert, lol.

      That is a neat idea! I have used egg cartons to start seeds in before we went commercial.

      I agree with you about the learning opportunities and teaching our children to appreciate the land and work that goes into it. Our children love living on the farm. Yes they grump and grumble about the work but I hope and pray it makes them all better people for the hard work they are learning to do!
