Woot! Eggshell Garden!

Posted by Aderia , Jun 25 2012 · 533 views

I've been running a week long project, in case you were wondering. I made an Eggshell Garden! Three, to be exact. And I decided it would make a more interesting blog entry than some of my others out there.

Day 1 (June 18th)
  • Got seeds at a wedding where I catered
  • Tapped off the tops of 3 eggshells with a knife, made scrambled eggs for my dinner (I wasn’t hungry by the time they were done, so I gave them to my dog)
  • Went outside and dug around in my garage for some potting soil
  • Potting-soiled the now-empty egg shells
  • Sprinkled in the seeds
  • Put a thin layer of dirt over said seeds
  • Put a worm in the left-most eggshell just for the heck of it. He’s a tiny guy.
  • Watered seeds
  • Took pics like a boss (1)(2)

Day 2 (June 19th)
  • Woke up and promptly forgot to water my seeds
  • Watering didn’t happen until 3 PM in the afternoon
  • Documented their (miniscule) progress with the camera (1)(2)
Day 3 (June 20th)
  • Knocked them off the window sill while raising the blinds. That was bad.
  • Rescued them, it’s all good now
  • Took pics (1)(2)
Day 4 (June 21st)
  • Took pics, then took a nap
  • Otherwise uneventful (1)(2)
Day 5 (June 22nd)
  • Forgot to water them again, so that didn’t happen until like supper time
  • Took pics like the paparazzi (1)(2)
Day 6 (June 23rd)
  • Had to change the batteries in my camera, blaargh. Took forever to find ones that worked. I had to steal them from the wii-mote. (1)(2) *annoying timestamps are annoying*
Day7 (June 24th)
  • I uploaded the last pics to my gallery, which took a nice chunk of time out of my Sunday morning. While that was happening, I watered my plants, and finished documenting.
  • I’ll try and post again when the wildflowers are actually flowering. A transplant may be needed in the near future, they’re getting so big. (1)(2)

That's awesome. Growing things from seeds is pretty fun. Maybe if I'd planted my snap dragon seeds in eggshells, they'd actually be growing now. XD (I just need to move the pot back inside.) Can't wait to see your wildflowers. :)

Can't timestamps be removed? Also, those .pngs take forever to load. I recommend using .jpgs instead.

Eheh. I'm not the most computer savvy person on here. Apologies. I'll keep the .jpg vs .png in mind, and look into converting them when I have time.
