Rusty Coffee Grounds

Post  songstriss on Sun 22 Jul 2012 - 20:10

I recently had a friend give me a can of coffee grounds she had been saving for my compost pile. I thought that was really sweet. However, they were saved in a steel can and it is all rusted inside. Can I still use those grounds or should I pitch it?

Sure enough, pitch it in! What a nice friend! Very Happy

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

A little extra iron is great for the garden!
