    When using eggs crack the shell at the end and rinse it out and put it back in the tray until its time to start seeds. Start your seeds in the shell. When you transplant the "eggplant" to the garden simply crack the shell so the roots can break through the membrane as they grow. Off course the shell will biodegrade into the garden soil.

    What if you don't like egg plant?

    Thats what the old boy on the news called it. I got 5 dozen started now with my okra, bell peppers, jalepenos and cayennes in them . The okra really benifits from them as they arnt the best transplantable plant.

    I've done this before when the kids were little but had forgotten about it.

    I think we'll add this to the farm tours this spring. Let everyone plant a flower "eggplant" to take home to their Mom.
