Making espresso in my yard!
Once or twice a week I stop by Wild Oats and pick up a back of juice bar leavings. On the way home I stop of at the drive-thru Starbucks and get some coffee grounds. I layer them with shredded newspaper and leaves in my compost bin.
But yesterday I stopped by a different Starbucks. They didn't have any grounds in the cute little silver bags, so I asked if they had any in the big regular garbage bags. The manager said sure, meet me out back.
When I drove around, he already had 4-5 big big bag, which I was of course, thrilled to take. I dumped one in the compost, but then I noticed the others were filled with just straight grounds, no filters. So I took the rest of the bags and scattered a nice mulch over all the beds.
And this morning my yard smells like a Starbucks!
