You Know You’re a Gardener… (#3 Coffee Grounds)

You know you’re a gardener when you save the old coffee grounds at work, so you can use them on your garden beds to deter cats from pooping in them.

  • dude, you gotza go to starbucks and get their grounds, too.
    they are saving them already packaged just for you!
    for free!

    • hi patchoullijulie! i go there to ( to Starbucks) :) love it!!

    • Someone told me about that… but I don’t want to get too much… I think I get it at work, just to do it… Going to Starbucks is too easy… hehe

  • i did not know that!
    and ha ha to the comment above this one.

    • I’m not 100% sure that it works… I heard it from somewhere, but can’t remember where from…

  • I guess I’ll be dumping some coffee grounds on my garden tomorrow. Some feline secret admirer left a “gift” in my new flower bed last night or early this morning.

    • Yeay, Gifts!!!… I love gifts… oh wait… but not that kind!

      You have to tell me if this really works… I heard about it somewhere, but I’m not sure if it really works…

    That’s funny! I occasionally put the grounds in my garden, just out of habit because my mother used to do it, I never knew why. This series is a good idea… what about: You can tell you’re a gardener if you call your pet sitter to see how your plants are.

    • I’ve done something similar… I’ve called home to ask my Mom to check if this or that is dry and needs water…

    One question, do coffee beans do any good? My grinder broke and I have left over beans… By the way, I’m illmethinks/illshethinks from flickr.

    • I’m not quite sure… Maybe you can use it as a mulch, since it is organic… I would think that it would make the soil more acid… since I think coffee is acidic…
