Add Fireplace Ashes to Fertilize Planting Beds
Don't know what to do with those ashes? This is a tip for those who have ash from a wood burner or fireplace. Place it in your garden or flower beds over winter, not all in the same place, just here and there. In spring as you till/working the ash in the ground, you'll find how it makes your ground so much more lose and easy to work with.
I also think there is some added fertilizer that naturally comes from the ash. It really does good things to your ground. Can't wait for spring, have had enough of winter. Here in WI.

Ashes are full of potassium, and will make the soil more alkaline. (In fact, you can get something like lye from running water through the ashes).
