Adding a Morning Sun Bed





Been working on this for several weeks now. That is where i have been. We also hit Starbucks, where you can pick up their used organic coffee to enrich your soil with. You go in and ask for their grounds for grounds and they will hand it over. It is an excellent almost neutral (ph 6.9) additive. My favorite it is free. We also put manure and compost in this. it is about 12 feet by 15 feet. It is almost ready for plant life.

I use the grounds from our automatic coffeemaker for our Rhododendrum. It is great that they offer it for free at Starbucks and a great recycling idea. I cannot believe your foxgloves are already blooming. Ours don't show until the end of May or so. Greetings from Germany, Andrea

Starbucks' coffee is so strong, I bet you could use their grounds to make another pot at home before you add them to the garden!
