Hi, I'm Farm to Table Chef, Teca Thompson at, and today we're talking about how to use eggshells around tomato plants. So eggshells are a great way to add calcium and nutrients to your tomato plant as well as curbing blossom end rot and being a natural slug repellant. So I've just collected my eggshells. You can either do the raw eggshells or hard boiled, whatever you are eating in your kitchen is fine and I rinse them out after I collect them and I just leave them in the sun to dry. I'm just going to place it in a plastic bag. I'm just going to take the eggshells and give them a real good scrunch and once they are all scrunched up like that I'm just going to sprinkle them around my tomato plant and use about a cup and then I'm just going to take my little trowely thing and I'm going to just work them in like this. And then I'm just going to water them in so they can get settled and start breaking down and adding nutrients and calcium to my tomato. I'm Farm to Table Chef, Teca Thompson, at, and that is how to use eggshells on tomato plants. Thank you for watching.
