|I'm starting a vegetable garden this fall, (I live in Central Florida so anything this time of year is insanely hot right now) I'm trying to figure out a way to cut down on my costs associated with starting it. I've heard that you can mix in coffee grounds with top soil and garden soil? is this true? and how much would you use? I'm also going to be using dehydrated manure as well.

|Coffee grounds make a decent soil amendment but they won't provide nutrients to your soil. I'd use aged manure or compost. Spread a 4-5 inch layer over the top of the soil and dig it in to a depth of 8-10 inches. It will provide the nutrients your plants will need. good luck with your garden!
