You wouldn't want to roll around in lime & breath lots of it in either,you wouldn't shower with strait chlorine either,haul a tractor trailer load of laundry detergent & hazmat placards have to be displayed,hydrogen peroxide will burn your skin in its stronger formulas.

A little ash probably won't hurt you but I wouldn't want to roll around in it and breath large quantities of it every day. I don't have a problem dumping it in the yard but I wouldn't add any specifically to a vegetable garden. No good reason to and perhaps reason not to.
Tractor trailers hauling coal with heavy metals & radioactive material & no haz-mat placards ????????? What are you suffering from ???? The DEP & DOT love to regulate hazmat materials ,if coal qualified you can be sure that you couldn't haul more than 500# max without placards.Some one has got brain freeze and is posting dribble !!!!!!!!!!!
