Using Coffee Grounds in the Garden

I heard long ago that coffee grounds are a bonus for the garden. They seem to help keep some invading bugs off your plants. I have been also adding them to my my compost. One other thing, I had a huge problem with ants, mainly in the spring. I was told if you sprinkle the grounds around the foundation of your house, it will help keep them out. So I started doing this, even in the winter. It worked! I rarely saw them at all during the warm weather. (11/09/2010)
