I just made clam chowder for the first time! (This was very exciting for me).
But now I have a huge pile of clam shells. Anyone have suggestions for what to do with them? Something eco-friendly to keep them out of the landfill?
I know ground oyster shells can be used in the garden...
in some plants--OK but you should check with your local garden center the can change the soil some are fine with it others it will add too much calcium
i use them for lots of herbs and other potted plants in place of rocks
take them back to the ocean
I dunno, I do know that you are supposed to return oyster shells, why not clams? It makes sense...
That is a good idea. You are right, I think the ocean best knows how to deal with shells.

How was it?
If you have a dirt or gravel driveway, throw them there
The clam chowder turned out great
we live in NYC so we would get a fine if we tossed them out front, but I can totally see people doing that in less populated areas!
