Hey guys .... is there any way for me to use the wood ashes from my fireplace? I know not to use them on my naturally alkaline soil, but is there some way around just tossing the ashes in the trash? Are ashes beyond any nagical composting 'presto-chango-mitigation'?
I've even thought of adding them to cement mix when I make stepping stones -- a project planned for 2010. Any thoughts on this?
