    Grinds with gardens

    I never knew people used coffee grounds in their gardens. I wonder how nicely their gardens must smell, or how crazy fast their worms and flower must grow hehe

    oh yes, of course spent grounds. I don't care how beautiful a rose, I wouldn't use good coffee on it.

    I have been composting my coffee grounds for about 4 years and it makes some wonderful soil for potting plants and garden vegetables. Just about all my kitchen scraps go into the compost bin, except bread and meat.

    Yet another benefit of being a coffee junkie...people love it and plants do too!!! Although coffee does grow on trees so that is sort of cannibalistic in an offbeat sort of perspective.
