Do you have chickens and a vegetable garden? Than you should definitely be saving those egg shells for use in the garden! This is the time of year that I start saving them for when I plant my tomatoes and peppers. In this article I will share exactly how I prepare them and use them.

I am a homesteader on 2 1/2 acres in the Pacific NW. It all started when I read Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver almost 10 yrs ago. We already had a few chickens, but then we got more. Then my girls joined 4-H and we got more chickens. Than we substantially enlarged our vegetable garden and planted more fruit bearing plants. Then we got goats. And more chickens. And ducks. All with the goal to live a more self sustaining lifestyle. Wanting to know where our food came from, what was in it, and how little it traveled from our homestead to our belly's. And all from the efforts of our own hands. It is such a satisfying, fulfilling lifestyle and I am so grateful to be able to live this way. Come learn how to Grow, Harvest and Preserve with me on the homestead!
