Hey, so we're eating those 55 dollar a dozen beauties- first time this summer you better believe- and the kid says, so can you compost this stuff? Can't we get (little brother) to mash up the shells? Well, I know what to expect. I've been 'around the bin ' a few times. I'm just wondering if anybody's been brave enough to do it. I'm seriously tempted to take my dozens shells and assorted part stuff and bury it in the ground and then pile a nice big mound of my usual compost mix all over it and just let it cook .Think of the calcium!
