I have recently tried a couple of small projects in the garden with the intention to upscale and go full-on kitchen garden.

I have been watching eagerly the progress of growing chillies. A problem I have is the less than appealing temperatures. I am testing and as for the future it leaves a few plants with a more concrete plan in needing more heat.

As for now, I have made 2 test pots, one with just chillies and one with added eggshells.
I have heard before they can help to be good at repelling slugs and snails. I also wanted to test the power of nutrients from them too.

The picture shows a clear difference in height for the ones with. Granted there may be other factors as well but right now it’s clear to me eggshells can work as an organic fertilizer.
