Urine is actually quite sterile, and is full of protein. May 6, at 2: In colder weather, you can either go back to flushing your urine down the toilet or stockpile your liquid gold in tightly closed containers if you have the space and the inclination. Some people say corn, being a grass, can handle fertilization with straight urine. Obviously, there are important guidelines and safety procedures for farms and entire communities that rely on urine fertilizer for crop production — like special two-compartment toilets designed to collect urine free of fecal contamination — which are unnecessary for someone like me who pees directly in the garden and with more casual purpose in mind. Oh, and my fruit trees and roses are doing to well because of this, amazing!
We do have two little boys who I know would be all to willing to contribute to the cause, however we've been working on "keeping your pants pulled up when you're outside" so I think this might get a bit confusing for my four year old - lol. Our garden is small and overlooked, so even DH couldn't wee on the compost directly without upsetting the neighbours. Remember though, if you play around with a toilet seat on a bucket, that doesn't mean you have to wait until the bucket is full. I've also read about peeing into a bale of hay or straw, later to be used as a mulch, or as a long manure to open heavy soils dug in or no-dig, whatever your system. That's just a guess though. I attended a session on humanure systems at the PASA conference last year, and was sold on the concept even though we don't have access to a good supply of cover material to make it work.

Interesting post if you can ignore the Yuck factor. All that's involved is marking the inside of the bucket to indicate the fill levels that represent the correct proportion of water to pee. Christine, I've had a funnel for years for use on long car trips and camping trips. Sorry, we couldn't find any pages containing Watch some of our most popular Tube8.
Description: A small pile can obviously only absorb so much. Put your first mark inside the bucket at that level. The nitrogen in pee is such a valuable commodity that airborne bacteria will colonize the pee almost immediately and begin exploiting it. Good point about the prescription meds. Don't have an account?
