Egg + Pepper = Growth

I was looking for ways to spur a little growth out of my pepper plants since they are one of my only crops left now that my squash plants have taken a turn for the worse.

An internet search yielded this suggestion:
Crush up eggshells (I actually put them into my coffee grinder)
Mix the shells with water and let them sit for 24 hours.
Pour the mix at the base of the plants.

Maybe it is coincidence, maybe it is not - but my pepper plants are definitely in production mode.
Try it if you are looking for a way to get a higher yield off your plants. Let me know if you see the same success.
