The Annual Collecting of Used Coffee Grinds
March 20, 2009
The first day of spring marks the start of collecting used coffee grinds from Starbucks and their Grounds For Your Garden program. Used coffee grinds help increase the organic matter in your soil and in the past I’ve flung used coffee grinds on my lawn and in my flower beds.
Here’s an illegal snap of what I’m talking about – strongly-scented used espresso coffee grinds:
This is a very small sampling of what you can normally get in a day. The guy behind the counter said they weren’t bagging them up yet as it’s still winter (I neglected to tell him today was the first day of spring).
I’ll go home and fling these underneath the apple tree.
