10 Awesome Tips You Never Knew About Using Wood Stoves That May Change Your Life
ReadyNutrition Readers, we’re having a heatwave out here in Montana…it’s 9 degrees Fahrenheit while I’m writing this. I hope you guys and gals are nice and warm and you have a good wood stove in front of you keeping it so. You recall I wrote one on wood stoves not too long ago, and I wanted to supplement this for a few more things you can do with yours. Aside from using wood stoves to stay warm and cook food on, here are a few tips you never knew on how to get the most out of your wood stove.
10 Ways to Make the Most of a Wood Stove Ashes
One of the things you should consider is the potash that comes from your stove. Yes, all that wood turns into ashes that can be recycled and used. One of the things that you can do is to store them in a container (preferably a metal one that has a tightly-fitting lid) and use them later for producing your own soap. The ashes are boiled down in water (yes, this too can be done on your wood stove!), and combined with lye and other ingredients.
Your ashes can also be used for metal polishing, for the likes of metals such as brass and silver. It works really well straight up, or mixed with just a few drops of water. The ashes can also be combined with your compost piles and used as a form of fertilizer to replace many valuable minerals and nutrients that comes from carboniferous materials being burned. Why do you suppose a new forest sprouts up in a few years after a forest fire? All of that burned wood goes into the soil and enriches it. You can turn it into your gardens when you’re planting in the springtime for the same effect.
Charcoal is another product that you can take from your wood stove. Used for a variety of things besides just cooking, charcoal can also be finely-crushed and added to your ash supply to make soap. It can be set aside for use as cooking material or a fire-starting ingredient and even used to clean teeth. Charcoal can also be used to filter water (see previous articles on water purification).
There’s also soot from the chimney (although you’ll probably have to wait until springtime to obtain it when you brush your chimney pipe). Soot is the black substance formed by the combustion of your wood in the stove. This is fine particulate matter that adheres to your pipe walls, and is blackened, consisting mainly of carbon that has not been completely burned. Soot is responsible for many chimney fires. Soot can be mixed (in small quantities as needed) with a little bit of vegetable oil and some water to make your own ink. A type of soot is called lampblack, and is used in enamels, paints, and inks from a commercial perspective.
That soot also has a great deal of unburned oils and resins in it (especially if you burn a lot of pine…don’t scoff…if you live in the Rockies, you will burn pine unless your last name is Rockefeller, believe me). The oils, resins, and unburned carbon are excellent to mix with things such as sawdust and lint, with some wax for fire starters for the wood stove or camping and backpacking.
Dehydrate Food
The top of the stove is great for dehydrating food as well. You have recipes from ReadyNutrition for pemmican and jerky. You can make your own on top of the stove with small-aperture wire racks…of the type to cool off hot sandwiches and the like. Lay your meat on top of the wood stove top on the racks and allow that heat to dry them right out.
Here are five dumb-but-common seed-starting mistakes:
1. Not reading seed packages
If you’ve been gardening for a long time, chances are you’re like me: just doing things the same way you always have instead of reading the seed packages. As my story above illustrates, that’s not always the best idea. Maybe you’ve been sowing seeds directly — seeds that would really benefit from being started earlier indoors (like broccoli, which needs to mature before the hottest days of summer or it will bolt). Or maybe you’ve been planting your seeds a little too deeply and as a result, your germination rate is low. Reading seed packages can save time and money. It’s worth it.
2. Forgetting to label
Many of us who are old hands at gardening can identify our vegetable plants even before they set their true leaves. But can we identify the different varieties? That’s unlikely. Keeping track of how different varieties perform can help us decide whether to grow the same ones next year; and if so, if there is anything that we can change that might optimize their growth.
Don’t forget to label!
3. Not watering properly
It can be hard getting the moisture levels right for those tiny pots. A slip of the wrist, and they’re flooded. A busy day where you forget to water, and they turn into little Saharas, complete with wilted seedlings. It happens to the best of us. But we should try neither to underwater or overwater.

Start by making sure your potting mix is thoroughly wet, but not soaking, before you even plant. Purchased potting mix is often quite dry. Put some in a container, add water, stir, and let it sit for a little while to absorb moisture before you start planting.
Once planted, it’s best to water by misting the pots, rather than using a watering can, as a heavier stream of water can disturb the soil and dislodge seeds. Let the soil dry out just a little between waterings. If the soil is too moist, the seeds and seedlings will be more susceptible to mold, fungus, disease, and rot.
4. Starting seeds too early
In our eagerness to start gardening again, we might start our seeds too early. What could possibly be wrong with growing bigger, sturdier plants over a longer period of time? Well, particularly if you use seed flats or peat pots, you may need to repot large seedlings before the ground is warm enough for transplanting. Repotting means an increased cost to purchase more potting mix and larger pots; it also means more work. Also, some plants fare better if they are transplanted when they are smaller or less mature. For instance, if they are transplanted before they start flowering.
The All-Natural Fertilizer That Doubles Your Garden Yield!
A general guideline is to start seeds 4-6 weeks prior to your local last frost date; however, some herbs and vegetables can be started 8-10 weeks prior. Refer to /r2/?url= Off The Grid News for more information about when to start seeds indoors.
