No, I've never taken pictures of it. It is not very attractive or camera ready - just an old 60's pinkish beige bathtub with a piece of plywood on top held down by a couple cement blocks - so, I never thought of taking any pictures of it. Maybe when I set it up again for the summer, I might actually take a picture or two...

Here, though, is the old video that caused me to conceive such an idea. Mine is smaller and less elaborate, but the same idea.

Visited 4 different Starbucks stores this afternoon, and came home with a Jeep full of coffee grounds. One of the stores commented that they have had to throw a lot of their coffee grounds into the dumpster since no one has picked them up - I told her we must fix that, and told her to call me if they had grounds that no one picked up.  Meanwhile, I needed some grounds to spread on some new flower beds as well as a couple of the newly planted raised beds. I love going out the morning after scattering coffee grounds on the soil and seeing all of the holes where nightcrawlers have come up to grab coffee grounds and pull them down into the soil. 

This wheelbarrow is 6Ft3, and it is nearly full of coffee grounds from today's run...

That is awesome!
I need to start hitting them up again. In the past it has been very rare to get any though.

Stopped by 3 Starbucks cafes on the way home today, and brought home a lot of coffee grounds! All 3 shops said they haven't had anyone pick them of for a few days (probably due to the heat advisory we have been under for 4 days), and they were glad to get rid of them.  Over 300# of coffee grounds. Not sure where I will put all of them, they will all get good use.

My supply of Starbucks coffee grounds has been stopped for the duration of the coronavirus lockdown.  Starbucks has changed to drive-thru only until further notice. I called one of the local stores to ask if they will be able to still make the grounds available, and was told, "no, that has been suspended to minimize person-to-person contact."
