A Piece of Green -- The Daily Grind
So I will admit I have a serious addiction to coffee :) and in the past I was less than green in terms of the byproduct. Now a days I keep a 5 gallon bucket outside the kitchen door, and deposit my grounds there. Once full it goes out to the compost pile to get mixed in with leaves, the ocaisional yard clipping and other compost type items.
Since beginning this little piece of green, I am truly amazed at the amount of coffee grinds I generate, as well as the amount that no longer goes into the trash. I expect come springtime to harvest a good amount of rich compost material which will come in handy around the yard.
I plan to get much more involved into composting this year so this is a good start down that road.
