That just may work, Wanderer (hope all is well with you, btw). One would think there would be some sort of skin benefit with a pile of this stuff.

That being said...I don't know if I am recalling this right or no, but isn't ash supposed to be a benefit when it is mixed in the ground? Or am I thinking on something else entirely?

You're right, but volcanic ash has a lot glass in it, so it's not like taking fire ash and mixing it in the soil.

I knew it was ash...makes sense though that volcanic ash isn't necessarily a good thing. I found an ash layer a few inches under the topsoil when I was planting bulbs this fall.

I'm learning Hydroponics for growing in my modified green house I'm building.
Setting it up to run off solar, 12 volt, wind. 10x10x10.

It's a work in progress but should be done in another month or so. Then I get to tear it down and put it on a pallet it for the move up.

I just want to make sure that I get my ashes hauled.


I prefer the grass to look green.
