            Compost in 40 gallon Containers for Container Gardening-Recycle your trash for compost

            Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

            Hi! This is Going Organic. You can find our website at “www.goingorganic.weebly.com”! Today I am going to talk about composting. It is winter time here in Central Florida.

I picked up this bag full of coffee grounds the other day. Starbucks has a recycling program for their coffee grounds. Anytime, you can walk in and ask for their used coffee grounds. They will pull the whole trash bag full of grounds out and double bag it for you. The other day, the server even carried it out to the car for me. I just want to say “Thanks!” to the Lake Mary Starbucks for all their free coffee grounds. I’ve been using water from the fish pond, since it is used as liquid fertilizer in hydroponic systems. I have a page on my website on how to build an easy portable fish pond. I save the egg shells from cooking, since tomatoes like calcium. I let them
