We’re in the middle of Resolution Palooza over here. But all this home improvement has really got us dragging, especially during the week. So on one of my recent runs for some liquid energy I spotted this little bag of gold.
Apparently Starbucks bags used coffee grounds and sets them out for their customers to use in their garden. How did I not know this? More importantly how did I not know that coffee grounds were good for your garden, specifically nitrogen loving plants?
Oh yeah, you read that right. They’re FREE! Free garden food? Yes please.
Since we live in the desert our plants can use all the help they can get. So now our daily french press grounds are also going to good use. This may be our first and only step towards composting…but either way we’ll keep you posted.
We’re currently on the hunt for a nicer container to hold our grounds until they’re added to the garden. Thankfully it doesn’t have to be too big as the grounds should only be stored for two to three weeks before they start to loose their nutritional goodness.
So now we have another reason to drink our daily coffee…not that we needed one. And even better, one less thing goes un-wasted in our house.
Not so bad for a Monday after all.
