Does it have to be your own urine?  I'm asking because we're potty-training (so far, not too successfully), and I think he might be excited to pee in a bucket.

I'm thinking that would count since it's from someone who can't submit for the BB themselves.

I’ve been collecting urine for nearly a week while I’ve been staying in a yurt and it’s been raining a lot.

I’ve realized that A. I produce a lot more urine than I thought. Well over a gallon in about 4 or 5 days. And B. I should drink more water!

Diluted 10:1 and gave to blueberry bushes and many other fruit trees and growies.

I hope this counts as the "one picture" method.  I peed on a bee balm plant in a snow bank.  It's rather crappy soil so I'm hoping a bit of extra N in the spring will help it do even better.
