thanks for the tip, have a good friend who can supply me with some ash. am burning crap at the moment, strict rules here about cutting down trees so foraging and finding stuff laying about is what im mostly doing. burnt some cedar that wasn't ready and it fucked up my chimney so lesson learnt there... hoping it will all come together on the wood front and we get a good winter stack.
