Wood ash and a compost pile
Wood ash acts as a PH buffer or nutrilizer. It's better to be applied to acidic soil that you need to be less acidic, such as directly on a future garden site. I'm not sure what it would do with a compost pile,do you know?
Interesting.... but putting wood ash into your working compost heap is not a good idea for two reasons. Firstly a chemical reaction may take place with the nitrogenous constituents and ammonia can be released, losing nitrogen from the heap..., and also, the nutrients in the ash, mainly the potassium, are very readily soluble, so they will wash out of a compost heap.

And sprinkle some around fruit trees, stone fruit likes it, and apples which suffer from 'bitter pit', a condition that some apples sometimes suffer from, especially Bramleys.
