Recycle Coffee Pods For The Garden

I love my Keurig coffee maker and the mess-less perfect cups of coffee they make but I have a problem throwing away all those empty little cups. I have begun using the cups to start seedlings for my spring garden. I remove the foil tops. The coffee maker has already punched a hole in the bottom of the cup! Rinse them out. Fill with soil, add seeds, keep moist and cover loosely in sunless area until seedlings appear and develop, as usual.

We got a new coffee maker at work-one that uses the individual pods. I put a bucket out and now take them home. I empty the grounds into my compost bin and use the plastic pods as planters for seeds and babies-from spider plants. Planning a yard sale and will sell for 50 cents or so. will also be giving some away as gifts for a couple of housewarming. Not bad for free.
