my garden likes it black

Our garden is exploding!

A friend asked me if we inject steroids into the soil. We do have a little secret. We have not juiced the soil. However, we do use espresso grounds. And our garden loves it’s caffeine!

About every few weeks we go to our local coffee shop and pick up their espresso grounds. We take the rich grinds and rub it over the top of our soil. And the plants go CRAZY.

Here is our zucchini. I couldn’t help but post this. Notice that monster in the middle. We went out of town for the weekend and I must have missed it when I was going through harvesting our veggies.
