Ever wonder if there was something you can do with those leftover coffee grounds after you have brewed your morning cup? Well, here are some suggestions! Going into gardening season, a lot of these might just come in handy!
- Fertilize Plants- Old coffee grounds are nutrient-rich for plants that grown well in acidic soil
- Use as a snail and slug repellant in your garden
- Increase carrot and radish harvest by mixing your seeds with dry coffee grounds before planting. This will also give you a better way to spread the seeds. Anyone who has planted those little seeds before knows how hard it is to keep them all from going in one spot!
- Keep cats from using the garden as a little box by spreading used coffee grounds and orange peels thoughout your flower beds.
- Use as a freezer deodorizer! Sprinkle a bowl of coffee grounds with a few drops of vanilla extract and place in freezer to get rid of smells.
- Dye fabric, paper or Easter eggs with the grounds and hot water.
- Keep bait worms alive longer by mixing coffee grounds into the soil before you add the worms.
