We have this little vegetable garden.
It started out looking like this in May when Miss High School planted it.
By July it was looking like this. It was looking vibrant and healthy except for the Japanese eggplant leaves on the far left. They were being attacked by some kind of nasty pest. The underside of the leaves were covered in yucky beetles!
I read up on natural pest repellents and egg shells seem to do double duty in the garden. They need to be clean and dry to be used for this.
Then whir them up in a blender.
The shards are good for keeping crawly critters at bay (like slugs). The fine powder can be applied directly to the leaves.
I think the eggplant is a goner but I'm still going to try and keep the rest of the garden healthy.
Let's keep in touch!
