First, I collected some clear plastic egg cartons from the recycling center. (Costco sells eggs in these clear cartons too). Then one morning when we had scrambled eggs, we carefully broke the ends of the shell to save as much as possible for planting.
The sprouts are so teensy compared to the sunflowers!
Of course, yesterday we woke up to a dusting of snow, but I know that the warm weather will be here soon and we'll be able to plant these then. Just crush the bottom of the egg shell a little before planting them. I'm hoping to harvest lots of sunflower seeds for our chickens!
