Why does my garden smell like Coffee???

1 Oct

So I read this week that gardens love to drink coffee. Who knew.

Just kidding but they do truly love old coffee grinds. So I finally had an excuse to go to Starbucks and grab a pumpkin scone! It just felt so right on the first day of October.


After I was done ordering I very nicely inquired about thier used up coffee grounds. I offered to pay for them but they assured me that they could give them to me for free!!!! Free food for my plants. I was so excited I squeeled and walked out with a huge trash bag of old coffee grounds. My plants are just loving me now and the coolest thing is that after I got down laying down the coffee grounds it started to rain and my whole garden smelled like coffee.

I am not a coffee drinker but I love the smell of it.

    That is so cool that they gave you an entire bag of them! I usually dump mine on my avocado tree but I haven’t made coffee at home in a long time.
