Q.Is This Soil Okay?

Anonymous added on February 20, 2011 | Answered

My dad recently burned a log and stick pile near our house and I plan to use it to grow corn and pumpkins this year. The soil is quite ashy. Is this okay? What can I do to improve it?

It should be ok. I would water it well and till or hand dig the soil well to mix the ash into the soil before planting anything, just to make sure that the ash is not too concentrated and burns a plant.
