    Well, bananas are high in potash. They don't spread well, though.

    Wood ashes are high in potash.

    I am not sure about fish meal, feather meal, chicken manure and related products. Any thing that is processed with water tends to lose potash because it is soluble in water.

    I talked to all KINDS of people who smoke pot, and I just can't seem to get enough ash to do anything with. :rolleyes:
    No seriously,...potassium contains a carbon element,..therefore is organic.
