    Morning All!

    New to everything. Quick question. Wood Ash has been mentioned to add to "dust bath". Any issues with wood pellet stove ash?

    I would think that the ash is so fine it would be fine to use, it's just compressed wood.

    What a good idea! I am a dipstick for never thinking to use our pellet stove ashes. I see no reason we couldn't... Time to raid the shopvac my DH uses to clean the stove!

    I dump my fireplace ashes in my chicken yard.
