Free Coffee...'s organic, and your plants will love it.

Used coffee grounds are a great way to give your composting a kick start, added directly to parts of the garden or mixed into the compost pile. Even your worm bin, if you have one, will thrive.

The grounds are nitrogen rich and acidic. Ask your friends who know more than me about gardening (that would be anybody) about it. Hey, give them a bag too, and tell them about Insomnia Coffee Company.

Now if your friends want to taste some fine coffee, please be sure they try the fresh stuff at Insomnia's coffee house, not the used grounds in the bag. By the way, they do sell it fresh by the bag, so if you know any gardeners who are also coffee lovers, it's in the bag.

If you don't have any friends to help you, here's a Google page about Composting With Coffee Grounds. Go there and learn all you need to know. Better yet, if you don't have any friends, head on over to Insomnia Coffee Company and make some. Share some conversation over a cup and feel good knowing the used coffee grounds will be giving someone's garden a jolt.

A sudden violent jolt of it has been known to stop the victim's watch, snap his suspenders and crack his glass eye right across.” - Irvin S. Cobb

Editors note: Okay, I have no idea who Irvin S. Cobb is or what the heck he is talking about in this quote. I was just looking for a quote on 'jolt' and this came up. Hope it isn't offensive - let's just say he was talking about coffee. - Dan
