    • Grow Seeds in Eggshells


      from Gardener's Supply / Added

      Use an eggshell to grow a tiny crop of ornamental seedlings. Displayed singly or in a group, the seedlings make a great spring centerpiece. Any eggs will do; just be sure to rinse them thoroughly before filling with soil. Any traces of egg will result in bad smells. Almost any seed will work. Try leftover grass seed, wheatgrass or salad greens. Just make sure the seed is relatively fresh. If it's really old, it might not germinate. Because the eggshells don't have drainage holes, it's not practical to grow garden seedlings in them. However, you could start them in eggshells and then pot them up into something bigger after a few weeks. The idea here is to create a simple, beautiful centerpiece that celebrates springtime.

          More detailed info on grafting tomatoes available at www.FARMstanza.com There are gardeners that have greenhouses, propagation rooms, misting systems, and so on -- and then there are normal people. Normal people have a dining room table or maybe a living room that their cohabitants have graciously given up for the start of the garden season. If you're capable of starting your own seeds, then nothing is stopping you from grafting your own tomatoes. Grafting is the tomato equivalent to taking a person, and combining a great sense of humor with drop-dead-sexy looks. Right, it's a no-brainer. Grafted tomatoes produce more fruit, produce later into the season, and are more disease resistant than ordinary tomatoes. Here are some methods that helped me achieve over an 85% success rate grafting tomatoes -- in my dining room. Once you graft your own, you'll never go back to the old, ordinary tomato.
