This article is just another of many that has educated me from Food52. Love this!!!! Just to confirm on the coffee grounds, they are used brewed coffee grounds in all of these suggestions and not fresh unbrewed? On the used coffee grounds, do you need to make sure they are dried out completely before using in any of these suggestions? Also what is the brand of pour over in the photo with this article? You are amazing!!!! Have a beautiful coffee day!!!!!

The bromeliads in my garden were being decimated by slugs. I found out that the slugs hate sliding over a coffee grounds, so a thick ring of them around each plant has allowed the bromeliads to thrive and blossom. Same colour as the soil, breaks down to improve the humus, and no blue snail bait tempting the native animals.

When I was a kid in the Adirondacks, we used them for food for night crawlers for fishing.

Garbage disposals don't have blades. Coffee grounds would not sharpen them if they did.
