If it only takes 3 days for a little bit of salt and whey to turn a jar of tomatoes into salsa, I could see the salt in the urine and it's natural breakdown bacteria's having the same effect.
nobody died, nothing wigged out, and the soil is no longer hydrophobic.
..... and I'll pee in anything everytime if I think i'm taking part in a home brew inoculate.

If urine and ash are acid and alkaline, would they balance each other out if mixed?
I'm curious about useage because we generate a lot of woodash from our woodburning range that's on about 10 months of the year. In the beginning someone told me that you could just add it to the compost heap so I did with disastrous consequences - lots of killed plants - so now I don't add it. In fact, I've become scared of it ops:
We don't have anywhere under cover to keep it so it goes in a pile on a piece of plastic and is covered by another piece of plastic but somehow the rain gets in. Does that render it useless?
Ash - How much to put around trees and when?
Can I add some ash to our composting loo pile? If so, what sort of ratio. Actually, now that I've written that it's made me think..., can you use ash as a sawdust replacement in a non-separated composting loo (that would be an ideal use if possible).
