Tip From the Island: Starter Pots

Starter Pots

Sure, some places use peat pots to start their plants.  But have you considered egg shells?

Egg shells are a great alternative. The chickens are already making them daily, they breakdown well and add a little calcium to the soil. The calcium from eggshells is also touted to be a neutralizer of acidic soil, but you might need a bit more than one or two shells.
