    *FACT..Bury tea bags in your garden and you'll have fewer tea bags.

    It's amazing how clever nature really is.

    I use my Tea Bags in my garden and have for years. They stop bugs and are awesome for opening up and putting seeds into. Once they sprout I just put them in a pot or my garden bed.
