Sowed 36 bushels of peat-ashes on part of my farthest field, which has never been ashed since it was laid-down to grass. Qu: if it be right to sow ashes amidst so much rain & snow? So much moisture must probably dilute the ashes too much, & render them of no effect. Much snow on the ground. These ashes did no manner of good.
