I don’t care much for coffee…I have the strong Mormon prohibition against it and, IMO, it’s just bitter nasty stuff. And then there’s the fact that I worked in a coffee shop during my early college years and I just lost interest in the smell after inhaling it for hours a day. Also, I was really shocked recently to learn that the only commodity that the US imports more of than coffee is OIL. Yes, we buy that much coffee. Incroyable!
[Note: The exception to my coffee dislike being coffee-flavored ice cream, which is awesome.]
However, my garden OOZES coffee smell. Just today I amended my soil with worm castings and coffee grounds. The sun was out and the soil was warm. My plot smelled more ripe with expresso than Starbucks. This is the first year that I’ve used coffee as a soil additive. And now I’m wondering if my tomatoes will have a slight java flavor? Hmm….
