Giant bag of coffee grounds

My dad brought home a GIANT bag of coffee grounds yesterday. I topped up the remainder of the existing compost bucket, and was able to fill up a second bucket. Afterwards, the entire garden area smelled like coffee. It was really quite nice. The best part is that the annoying fruit flies which have started to colonate in my compost again recently will be moving house quick. Gotta love those coffee grounds. Perfect in the morning, and great in the compost. I've heard of some offices putting an empty coffee tin beside their coffee maker to collect the coffee grounds for use in the garden later. Coffee grounds can be put straight into your garden to be used as a slow-release nitrogen source if you don't have a compost. Free fertilizer - you should cash in now before they start packaging and selling them.
