    Re: wood ash.

    The old timers would take all their brush and burn it over their beds for that reason, plus kill weed seeds and bugs. Now that is illegal most places

    Yeah I'm thinking a tire might be a tad conspicuous during the day

    Re: wood ash.

    Took my neighbor to pick up his car, after the alternator quit. The shop was way out in the country and it had an outdoor wood furnace for heat. They had about 6 bushels of wood ash in containers by the furnace. I asked what he did with the ashes and the guy said I put a few here and a few there til I get rid of them. I asked if I could come back and get them and he said yes. I think they will be a good addition to my planting area. I noticed an article on the internet that said wood ashes around plants were a good deterrent to cut worms as well as helping with plant nutrition.

    Wood ash is a good source for potash, Chloride free. Also great for removing hair off buckskins.

    All that wood ash would be a good score, Ray. Good fertilizer.

    Re: wood ash.

    When you talk about "wood ash", is this any wood or just hard wood ash? I can get a lot of pallets to burn but I think they are mostly Pine.
