    Hi Sara, Thanks for this! I have been eating a lot of eggs lately – now that the girls are back in production mode! – and I have been wondering if I should keep my shells and do something with them. I didn’t know about using them for slugs – great idea!

    I would love to see a post about your composting methods – I have tried different things and nothing is just right. I would like to avoid buying an expensive rotating compost bin if I can and I am sure you have a terrific solution I could copy!

    Thanks for the tips and reminders!! I will definitely be checking out your tomato planting routine since mine is fairly pathetic. Cheers!

    Perhaps this is a stupid question, but if you’re using your egg shells in the back yard, does that bother your chickens? Do they understand that those egg shells are from their eggs? Maybe it’s a non-issue because they’re in a totally separate place, but I just had to ask. Thanks for not laughing at me.

      Never mind, I missed the part about toasting them. I guess they can be canibals too. eeewwww.

    Sara – question: do you rinse out the egg shells before you compost or use them in the garden? Do you let them dry out? Do you break them up as you toss them into your compost pail? Thanks!
