til it in the garden soil.

If its Kingsford or any other briquette that isn't 100% hardwood I would toss it...putting it in the woods or garden isn't going to help with all the chemicals in their!

Lump charcoal ashes I put in the garden and flower beds.

So does mine. I might feel guilty (it's undeveloped land, formerly a dairy farm, soon to be a housing development) if one of their trees hadn't fallen across my fence and smashed my deck a couple of years ago. I figure I still owe them about 1500 more pounds of ash to call it even. :mrgreen:

Put mine long the fence, kills off the weeds.

Well first thang is a person need to figger out if their soil is acid or alkaline. If its acidic..which can purty well be determined if it will grow some species of Evergreen Tree..it would be safe to scatter it over the yard. Only way it will hurt the grass is if a person pile it up and it smothers the grass..shuts off the light etc. Now you could also make soap out of it if you an industrious type feller or if you are the boss at your house you can make your wife do it. If I was to point out a big pile of ashes to the warden and tell her to make soap she would say something like this, "Yes Dear..do you want me to make Ivory or Lava soap?" As you can see I run thangs at my house.

I'm guessing the warden is computer illiterate!
