saving wood ash
What is a good way of keeping (a lot of )wood ash usable?
I don't want to buy a container and would prefer to keep them outside . as I have seen suggested.
But they will inevitably get damp if I dig them into a hole in the ground and cover them.
Will a bit of dampness matter so long as they are not subjected to direct rain- or will I have to ensure they remain powdery dry for when I want to apply them in the spring ?
