I have a common snapper. People that keep turtles know their water is pretty gunky at times. Even as a small turtle he produces a lot of waste. When he is 40 pounds, that equals quite a bit of poopy water!

I am eventually transferring Snappy to the livestock area of the property and was thinking about composting with his refuse water for plants.

Anyone using turtle water as a fertilizer additive?

I'm not sure about salmonella but I figured if it was composted right that bad things would die off. Right?

Snappy must earn his keep eventually!  I'd hate to have to eat him, lol.

What do ya'll think?
permaculture is largely about replacing oil with people. And one tiny ad:
