So for a while now I've been using this excellent recipe for fertilizer using banana skins and egg shells. But I keep finding that its a nightmare to get the eggshells out of the smoothie maker afterwards, because it does such a good job of pulverising them! So I decided instead to pre-crush my egg shells, which I can then add to my now adapted recipe of a banana skin and nettle cocktail. This way I can just add them after in the jug and mix in, saving me bags of time cleaning that damn thing.
So it also means I have crushed shells available to scatter on top of stuff (to deter those pesky slugs!) and to mix into soil.
Why didn't I think to do this before!?
