Currently an ecb.

I keep telling here thats for cooking chicken breasts on weekdays )

Great idea on for the azaleas. Ours are currently very unhappy.

If you have a pH issue with the ashes then add a bit of ammonia. Not only will it bump the pH up for you but will give you a nice N addition.
This is correct however I would not recomend spreading ammonia if you have kids or pets, Chicken chit will do what needs to be done there for acidity and a bit of ammonia too.

You can make lye with hard wood ashes, most briquetts dont have enough hardwood in them to make good lye because they are generaly made with soft woods. Your ashes can be spread in your garden or grass without harm as long as they are not piled up.
