I was told too much coffee isn’t liked by the microbes growing in the compost. My husband works from home and drinks a lot of coffee and I was told I may be a better weed blocker. Now we use it to line our walkway to our house which is riddled with weeds and grass creeping in from the sides. Hopefully it works...Right now, all I have is coffee grounds for compost. Dad tells me he doesn't like fresh veggies...so, no salad trimmings. The egg shells stand out too obviously for now. So I stopped putting them out. Even crushed, they still look like eggshells. I can't even get out to the garden yet to evaluate what is growing in it.
Egg shells do take a while to break down, although; they little sharp pieces may help deter rabbits from intruding as they feel the sharp pieces under foot... or so I’ve been told.
If you don’t have free manure around, you can always buy some from Home Depot/Loews etc. Add dry dead stuff from around your yard: grass clippings, dead leaves, dried pine needles, etc. There you have it!
