best use for ashes from garden burn pile
We have accumulated a large pile of garden trash to burn - weeds, wood branches, cardboard. It's been piling up since early winter. Since it has been in the pile for a long time, I do not plan to take it apart or add to compost. I prefer to burn it as is. As soon as we burn it and they cool off, - what is a best use for those ashes? Should we mix the ashes in:
a) the compost pile
b) raised garden bed (we were going to spread seeds of compost crop for the fall)
c) spread/mix into flower bed soil
d) spread at the bottom of fruit trees
e) spread around grape vines
In the past, the ashes would remain on the ground and get washed away by the rain.
