Grounds on the ground

I heard that coffee grounds can be added to the garden to improve the soil, and investigated further. Apparently they:

a) repel slugs
b) are loved by worms
c) make great mulch
d) amend clay
e) make great compost
f) are available free from Starbucks!

So this morning I trotted down to the Starbucks next to my work, and asked for their leftovers. They're saving them in a bag for me as I type, and can provide unlimited grounds for P. Garden. Sweet - I don't think we can have too much of that free product!

  2. Oooh yes - I have been wondering what's the best way to get a LOAD of manure to P. Garden. I guess I could put some in the trailer. Or just bring the horses and tether them by the compost heap for, oh, 5 minutes (until it was full!) ;)
