On the 22nd August I wrote about using egg shells to propagate seedlings.
Just thought I'd give you an update.
A couple of weeks ago I sowed beetroot seeds into egg shells and this is the result.
All I need to do now, is crack open the base of the shell in order to allow the roots to take a walk, place it in the soil, and then wait to harvest the beetroot in a couple of months.
i'll let you know if the cutworm can work their way through this obstacle...
But I reckon this works thus far :)
"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully."
