Ashes for gardening

As winter is winding up, it is not too late to save ashes from your fire place for gardening.  Ashes have good nutrition for plants, and when mixed with animal manure or other high-nitrogen fertilizers, present an almost perfect fertilizer for your garden.  Sprinkle at the base of the roots of transplanted tomatoes, or dig ditches around your trees and bury them; turn them into the soil of your aisles and watch your plants grow!  The ashes provide excellent minerals that your plants need to live.
