Mmmmmmm.... old coffee.
These were just some of the bags, I found several more hiding in the garden shed.
Why add coffee to your garden you might ask. Because worms Love coffee grounds and it adds nitrogen to the soil. I only add grounds when I don't have anything planted. Although grounds are neutral in their acidity (the acidity soaks out with the coffee), I am still afraid it would burn the plants.
Once the snow is melted and I am ready to plant again, hopefully this will help improve my soil.
Other reasons to love coffee grounds:
Heat up your compost pile
Repels slugs and ants
And it smells good!
I raked it all over the garden. We found a place to get free wood chips, so once we find a day when we are just sitting twiddling our thumbs (which would be NEVER) we'll go get a couple loads to top off the garden.
Three cheers for coffee!!
