I put our egg shells in a bucket and when its full I smash them up and work them into our garden, it servers two purposes, its a source of calcium and slugs and snails will not crawl over sharp egg shell edges.


Don’t waste your time online, invest it with steemit.com

Coffee grounds and tea bags should go in the ground too.

If you have any concerns about worms eating coffee grounds, read this (or just let the grounds sit awhile to develop a fungus that the worms like):

yup.gif I wish we had a place for a compost heap, but that doesn't work out so well when you have a micro yard.

My mother, who was raised on a farm, just buried scraps straight into the ground, but here's a better idea.

My sis and I went grabaging this weekend. Not garbaging - grabaging. We drove around neighbourhoods after yard/garage sales were finished and picked up all the free good stuff left by the side of the road. We were grabaging it for an animal rescue organization that takes anything and everthing to resell for money to buy food, medicine and vet care.

We found tons of children's clothes, which my sis will take the time to wash and get out all the stains, kids' toys, pictures, porcelain from England, a baby basinette with wooden stand, etc.

I found a bag of crochet designs from the 1950's which I kept for myself...one woman's trash is another woman's treasure.

Nice! You can come across some real treasures that way, I found an old one of a kind brass floor lamp from the 20's by the road left for trash by people who were moving.
Replaced the chord, polish and wow.

Thanks guys, it was my first time, but I enjoyed it.

The weird thing was that when we arrived at the grabage stashes there were no other people looking through the items, but once we started rumaging through everything the neighbours, that were sitting on their front porches watching us, suddenly got up and rushed over to rummage too...so we had to be fast. chuckle.gif
