I chose to fertilise my brassicas, beans and cucurbits (a heavy-feeding winter squash, just getting going), all of which are grown in quite close proximity. I actually have several such spots as my garden is a riotous polyculture of pollinator-friendly ornamentals, perennial and annual veg, herbs and groundcover. I chose just one for this BB, as required.

I gave nitrogen water to some comfrey!

Edit: My first photo was unclear about where the urine was, so I edited it to add a bunch of arrows pointing at it. Please let me know if it still isn't clear enough.

This tiny tomato plant needed some fertilizer. Pee to the rescue!

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - one picture of direct peeing on moist soil around a urine loving plant and what the urine loving plant is
 - OR two pictures: one of urine being diluted and one of mixture being given to plants



I diluted the urine with rainwater from my rain-barrel

diluting urine


And little tomato plant getting it's fertilizer

I poured only on one half, so the tomato plant could chose how much it wanted

Another twist on this..... producing a golden river for growies.....

In Europe, where a lot of research is focusing on closing the nutrient cycle and decreasing environmental costs, you can purchase a standard-looking toilet that has a urine diversion bowl, which makes the entire collection process hands-off. In some areas, you can even contract with a service to come and empty the tank periodically and deliver your accumulated urine to an appreciative farmer. While less of that is going on in the U.S., urine diversion toilets are available through specialty plumbing supply houses if you want to make the investment. And if you live near Burlington, Vermont, the Rich Earth Institute is actively researching the collection and use of urine as a fertilizer and is looking for donations. The Institute's website offers good advice on collecting urine in general.
