Rich Duquense has a link in the Salvia Forum to an article about using coffee grounds in the garden and in making compost. I thought so much of the article that I am reposting a link here. I collect large quantities of leaves and an occasional truck load of wood chips for composting and for covering the paths between beds in the vegetable garden. I am finding that copious use of coffee grounds greatly speeds up the decomposition process when there is not enough green matter available to supply the nitrogen that the bacteria need. I am curious how many others are using coffee grounds and what your experience has been with this free organic fertilizer.
