Save your egg shells to make great calcium for the garden. Food scraps are great for worms, but worms don’t digest egg shells, so instead of throwing them out, you can store them in a separate container to be ground into calcium powder for the garden.
Comfrey helps to provide nutrients for your soil and the leaves are great for the compost heap as comfrey’s quick rotting leaves work with bacteria and soil organisms to help speed the composting of dried leaves and other high carbon materials.
We plant comfrey in all of our garden beds because the deep tap roots help to break up our heavy clay soil.
