How to Prepare Eggshells for Use in the Garden: Vinegar & Blossom End Rot – The Rusted Garden 2014

I discuss this process and how to use vinegar to chemically breakdown the eggshell and make calcium. Blossom end rot is associated with calcium issues in tomato plants.

Mr Chiots and I love to go on evening walks with the chiots. We walk the stress of our little lake community admiring gardens as we go. Since we’ve lived here for 10 years, we’ve been watching a few gardens grow and change, while most pretty much stay the same. We always used to talk about this beautiful little yellow how with lovely gardens.

We watched as they added a fence, new cherry trees, a retaining wall, a seating area, and edible beds. The residents of the house were a mystery to us, until last fall. A sign about the oil/gas in the area was prominently displayed in their front yard, so we stopped and chatted with Jimmy. A few days later, Heather stopped by our home and a friendship was born.
