If you were growing summer squash: you know the season is over and that it’s time to be thinking about pulling those vines and composting them. My own winter squash, however, still have nice looking fruit and some decent looking leaves. When to harvest, and how to ensure long shelf life for the food bank clients? Fortunately, Territorial’s blog just had some good information (and pictures). Happy harvesting.
And, in particular, information about using coffee grounds in compost can be found at the WSU website.
