Gardening on Jul 8, 2016

There are many more uses for fireplace ashes than I ever knew. 1. Compost bin - only a little amongst the organic matter. 2. A light layer around plants can keep slugs away. 3. A tablespoon of ash to 1000 gallons of water for a pond will keep algae down.. 4. As a fertilizer. 5. Cleaning silver.
Can you give more ways to use ashes?

    A damp rag dipped in ash can clean your fireplace or wood stove glass. It works better than any cleaner. My husband actually spits on the rag. That may be what causes the magic

    My son is living in a dry cabin for a few months. Soooo he uses a bucket outside. He scoops in ashes from his wood stove to absorb the odor until it can be properly disposed of. Although the sawdust is better, the ash is quite sufficient.

    You can have some in the garage. (wait for a long time before putting it in there in a fireproof metal container) use it for an icy driveway.
