Eggshells in the garden

I came across this article today and thought I'd share.

Even pulverized to a fine powder I think eggshells would take longer to dissolve to calcium than I would want if I were already experiencing blossom end rot. I've seen the suggestion of Tums made in a couple of places. They're meant to dissolve quickly and they'd be an inexpensive alternative to someone with only 1-2 plants. But the ground up shells would make great soil amendments and I also found another 3 uses for the humble eggshell. Be sure and read the original comment to the article (that'll be the one at the bottom) for the 3rd great tip!
