I save all my wood ashes from the wood stove. Today I mixed up a 5 gallon black plastic bucket of dry compost material, some dirt, and some wood ashes with a plywood top on the bucket. I keep it in the garage every time I have to pee I do it in the bucket about 7 or 8 times a day.
In about a week or so it will start to have a very strong Ammonia smell that is when I move it to the yard in direct sun light so it will get hot during the day. The buckets has several cracks in it from ice freezing it during the winter. It will be completely composted in 30 days. I start a new bucket about every week.
I use lime, 15/15/15 fertilizer and compost on my Tomatoes.
I use 6/12/12 and lots of compost on my potatoes.
