Composting Corner

Composting Corner Image

Coffee grounds can be used in the garden and on the farm for so many good things.  Here are just a few of them: 

1. Sprinkle used grounds around plants before rain or watering, for a slow-release nitrogen. 

2. Add to compost piles to increase nitrogen balance. Coffee filters and tea bags break down rapidly during composting. 

3. Dilute with water for a gentle, fast-acting liquid fertilizer. Use about a half-pound can of wet grounds in a five-gallon bucket of water; let sit outdoors to achieve ambient temperature. 

4. Mix into soil for houseplants or new vegetable beds. 

5. Encircle the base of the plant with a coffee and eggshell barrier to repel pests. 

6. If you are into vermi-posting, feed a little bit to your worms.
