You’ve probably seen a post or two on social media at some point praising the ability of eggshells to add to calcium to soil. It’s true that eggshells are mostly made of calcium, and calcium plays a big role in determining the soil’s pH— a measure of a soil’s acidity or alkalinity—and an important factor in plants’ overall health.

Попалась мне на циане одна квартирка. Описание:»К продаже предлагается изысканная квартира в центре Петербурга, расположенная в кирпичном доме , построенном для генеральских семей нашего государства в 1958 году. Квартиру по достоинству оценят люди, которые заботятся о своем комфорте и предпочитают классический стиль в отделке интерьеров. Тема неорусского стиля продолжается и в интерьере квартиры. Стилизованная резная мебель, каменная гладь стен, яркие пятна изразцов, зеркала и лепнина».
