Recycling Coffee Grounds

Here are a few tips for recycling old coffee grounds in your garden:

Add used coffee grounds to the pots of indoor plants.

Work used coffee grounds into your garden soil before seed planting. After your plants start to emerge, work in coffee grounds near the plants. Used coffee grounds are said to repel snails and slugs as well as adding nutrients to the soil.

Increase your carrot and radish harvest by mixing seeds with dry coffee grounds before planting the seeds.

Use coffee grounds to repel ants.

Keep cats from using your garden as a kitty box by spreading used coffee grounds and orange peels throughout flower beds.

Keep bait worms alive by mixing coffee grounds into the soil before you add worms.

Grow mushrooms on old coffee grounds.

Fertilize plants. Old coffee grounds are nutrient-rich for plants that thrive in an acidic soil.

When you come in out of the garden, remember washing your hands is a great defense to prevent infection.

Defending you and your family from germs can be a full time job. According to many health experts, your first line of defense is handwashing, and according to the Mayo Clinic, hand washing is a simple habit that can help keep you healthy.
