Hello Geeta!

I'd just like to say congrats to the person who won the 50$(since with my slow internet dial-up, I can't really see any videos)!

Also, my mom was wondering if what she does is okay:

When the coffee maker stops, she takes the filter and drops all the rest of the coffee mix on the grass. She says she heard somewhere, that it could be a kind of compost?

I have no idea, so I thought I'd ask you. Thank you in advance! I love your show!

Geeta says:
Hi Elena, I'm sorry about your dial-up situation, but thanks so much for taking the time to write in. As for your mum's idea, it's a good one. I know a lot of folks who use coffee grinds (after they've been brewed) to feed plants and nourish the soil. You can certainly add coffee to your composter, but there's nothing wrong with doing what your mum does. My only word of caution would be: watch what it does to your plants. If you find the grass is yellowing or wilting, ease up or dilute the coffee and water your lawn with it that way. Listen to what your plants are saying. And keep up the great work!
