Eggshells to give my plants a little Calcium boost

Rain is in the forecast! Isn't that "egg-citing"?๐Ÿค“

That means I'm going to use these eggshells to give my plants a little Calcium boost. Just like Calcium helps us build strong bones, it also helps plants build stable structures by strengthening the plant cell walls.

๐ŸŒฟ So - why is rain prompting me to do this? Well, when the Nitrogen rich rain comes, Calcium will seep into the soil and eventually make it's way to the plants' roots.

๐ŸŒฑ This is what we do. Once I thoroughly dry out the shells, I roll them out with a rolling pin or stick them into a blender to create an easily absorbable powder.

๐Ÿฅš Then I side-dress (that just means placing it to the side or a circle around) the powder around my vegetable plants that look like they could use a little love.

๐Ÿ’š (You can also add some Magnesium to your soil by side-dressing your plants with some Epsom Salt. Magnesium is the macronutrient at the heart of producing Chlorophyll. During warm seasons it also is super beneficial for your fruit-bearing plants.

๐Ÿ‘ Thatโ€™s it. Happy Friday Everyone! if rain is heading to your neck of the wood, I hope you enjoy it doing something "cozy" and that your soul and your plants get some needed nourishment.โค๏ธ
