Saving Egg Shells for the Garden. Almost 98% of the eggshell is calcium carbonate, which is important to fast growing plants such as tomatoes, because the plant depletes the surrounding soil of calcium which is important to cell growth in the plant. Other plants that benefit from calcium are: apples, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cherries, citrus, conifers, cotton, melons, grapes, legumes, lettuce, peaches, peanuts, pears, and potatoes.
To prevent the larvae of the cabbage worms from burrowing into heads of cabbage, cover each head with a nylon stocking, and leave it on until harvest time. This method typifies good organic gardening pest control – rather than fight pests after they appear on your vegetables, take preventative measures to stop them from getting near your vegetables in the first place.
