The girls and I want sunflowers. So we are trying (again) to grow them from seed. The last couple of times we tried, something ate the seedlings so we gave up. This year we are trying again! I read somewhere (probably a cheesy women's magazine -I love those) that a good planter is an empty, clean egg shell. Apparently we can plant the whole thing, shell and all, into the ground and it will nourish our little plants as the shell decomposes. So here we are. With seventeen egg shells/seeds we are bound to get a couple of nice flowers. Can you tell which ones are mine? I used my food writers because nowhere on a Sharpie does it say "non-toxic" and we are hoping to get some seeds to share with the gerbil.
Wish us luck!!
