I'm fairly new and so excited about the PEPs. I am learning on 1/3 acre in a neighborhood while homeschooling my 6 kids.  We are all getting into learning, but I forget to document.  Usually, I have my boys pee into the watering can or on the trees, but here is less fun evidence.

Glad I read the dailyish about PEP and BBs. That gave me a link to 'what are your 20 easiest BBs' and in there was a link to this thread.
I never knew there was a BB for giving urine to plants. Of course that is the easiest! I did it many times, so all I have to do is to make photos next time.

Here is my BB attempt!

The beginning:


Full-ish jar (I wasn't risking getting too close to the top!):



Empty Urine Bucket (You might be able to tell that this is the buckets purpose):


Urine into bucket (I usually just pee straight into it but I thought that might make for a scandalous photo)


Dilute to 1:10:


Happy Heartnut Seedling:


Even happier Heartnut!:

Not your grandpappy's lemonade!

I picked tomatoes because they like nitrogen. I diluted the pee 10:1 in water. Also watered my peppers with it.
