Episode 44: Seedlings In Eggshells

Episode 44 of Crafty Mom’s Weekly Challenge consisted of me attempting to grow seedlings in eggshells.

At first I was like, “are people bored??”, because who has time to think stuff like this up? And then follow through with it? And then turn it into some kind of viral idea that you can also use as a centerpiece?

Just below those people you will find a weirdo mom willing to not only try it, but also document it via video. And that mom is me.

I do realize that for those who garden from seeds on up, this is actually an environmentally sound way of starting those sprouts because you can add the little plant to your garden, eggshell and all.

But I still think you might be a little bored.

Check out the full episode at The Stir and you can find more amazing viral pins tested and tried by me over there too!

The Home Depot Garden Club #DigIn

Last Summer I decided I would become a gardener, but I was too late to start from scratch. My Mom tried to encourage me by buying me a potted tomato plant that later snapped in half because I wasn’t aware that when tomato plants grow tall and heavy with tomatoes…you should probably stake it up with a little support.

This year when Spring finally hit I wanted to jump on the gardening ball early! I called my Mom and was all, “I’m going to garden again! When should I plant my tulip bulbs!?!” And my Mom was all, “You’re too late for tulips…”

But I wasn’t too late to grab my girls and pick out an array of vegetable seeds, pots, flowers (tulips)…you name it. This year I will be GROWING THINGS. And to help me along on this journey, the good people at The Home Depot Garden Club will become my support system.


I have indeed joined the world’s largest garden community and I will indeed be consulting them frequently for help keeping my projects “alive”. I won’t have to call my Mom to find out I’m too late to plant tulip bulbs anymore because the Garden Club provides monthly lawn & garden ideas for every region, monthly to-do lists, how-to videos, over $300 in email exclusive savings each year, and so much more.

Right now you can check out 8 Spring Garden Projects posted on the Garden Club page. I can tell you my kids really enjoyed the seed starter kit we started on our own and I’ve got my eyes on that window bird feeder next. My kids would be SO excited to see birds flying right up to the window for a little snack!

Stay tuned for some fun garden projects coming up!
