Hatch Your Own Tiny Plants

Start vegetable or flower seedlings inside egg shells.

Just save the shells of the eggs that your family uses in cooking and the cartons that they come in.

Put eggshell halves in egg cartons. Fill the eggshells with soil and plant two or three seeds in each one.

Put the carton in a sunny window and water to keep the soil moist but not too wet.

After your seedlings have sprouted and grown about 2 inches tall, carefully cut or remove the smallest seedlings, leaving only one strong one in each shell.

Then lift the shells from the carton and transplant your tiny plants (shell and all) into pots or your outdoor garden.
