We Could All Use a Calcium Boost

Since digging up my vegetable garden last fall, I've been saving egg shells and other kitchen scraps to incorporate at the bottom of my vegetable holes this year. Seriously, there's more ziploc bags of frozen goop in my freezer than food.

Yesterday, I finally get my tomato and bell peppers seedlings in the ground, and wouldn't you know it...I forgot the kitchen scraps in the freezer! I so need a tumbling composter because out of sight, out of mind.

At least I worked in a tub full of compost, humus and potting soil so they're not totally defenseless. I even had the foresight to plant marigold seeds around the tomatoes since I read the flower smell keeps tomato hornworms at bay. Guess we'll see.
