#11 Spread it on Your Lawn
You can spread wood ashes on your lawn, too. Again, don’t use ashes from wood that was painted or pressure-treated. However, you can spread wood ash on your lawn at a rate of 10 to 15 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Notice that doesn’t do it right before seeding.
#12 Save Seeds
When storing seeds to be used the next year, you have to be careful about how you lose them. If you don’t store them properly, they can lose their availability and will fail to germinate. Instead, you need to stab them in a medium that is insulating and also absorbs moisture. Add some ashes to the container in which you are storing seeds. This will not only cut down on moisture, but it will protect your seeds from any damage, too.
#13 Get Rid of Ants
There’s nothing more annoying than ants in the garden. Get rid of ant hills by dumping ashes on them.
