Putting an egg under a potted plant?

Has anyone here ever used eggs for fertilizer? I was making some homemade potting soil for my peppers and tomatoes, when I thought about putting an egg under the plant.

I vaguely remember reading about this years ago. Or maybe it was a meme floating around facebook? Anyway, I got some eggs from the chicken house, poked a hole in the top with a screw, the buried the egg under the plant.

For my peppers and tomatoes, I mixed up some homemade potting soil, then put an egg under each plant.


Not sure how well this is going to work, but I thought it would be worth a try.
