Get bigger better corn

Instead of throwing out the coals / ash from your fire save them up for a great additive for next seasons corn

What I do is save up a big bucket of coal and let it sit for a couple of months, just before I use it I mix in some seaweed solution. Then when im ready to plant my corn seeds i dig a trench about 6 - 8 inch deep and fill it with the coals/seaweed solution, cover it up with a bit of dirt then plant the seeds. When I tried this last year I couldn’t get over the difference in the corn with the coals and the ones without.... amazing!
