Coffee anyone ?

If you are into having a cuppa when gardening, and in to either fresh tea with tea bags, or filtre coffee, why not use the old tea bags and coffee grounds on your soil ? A courteous visit to your local Starbucks , Cafe Nero  or whatever, will have you coming away with bags of free used coffee grounds and tea bags to use as a great addition to your beds, and it ends up as a great win win situation.  Free nitrogen, soil conditioner and all the fun of the fair !

    And, for a bit of exercise, you can always go for a walk around the grounds !

    With the change in the weather this past few days, I think cocoa, Bovril, hot choccy laced with rum is more to the challenge than simple tea !  Cheers !

    Do you just ask for some spent coffee grounds in the shop?
