    What do you do with your ashes. Use them around plants, gardens? Dispose in the trash? Dump them in your neighbors yard?? Just curious.

    i take mine out and mix into the compost with raked leaves and such , grass clippings etc. i use this compost for my flower gardens. roses seem to like ash from the stove , it should be noted though that just ash by itself tends to harden and not let moisture through by itself , so mix it with peat or potting soil or somthing like that to allow it to be porous before using around roses or other bushes which like a lot of water

    I've been waiting for windy days and just toss it up in the air and then let out a sinister laugh as the ash plume blows towards my neighbor's house

    They are also great for spreading on your slick and snowy driveway for traction. As an added benefit, with the ashes being dark in color, it helps to melt that snow as well. Not wanting to use anything salt related on my concrete, the ashes come in very handy!

    Are you suppose to take them out of the stove? I was told at Lowes that you just need to keep pellets in the hopper. The 18 yr old employee did not mention any type of cleaning.
