I made a little cattail bed that lives on the drip of a 9000 gal tank.    
I dug it out and had the ducks and geese glee it.   Then I planted it with cattails.



It is kind of my special spot to pee because it is protected by the water tank and the cattails.

This is a photo of me adding urine near one of the new baby nectarine trees at Wheaton Labs. It's making its way through an organic hay mulch.



Thanks, volunteer reviewers! :)

I had to put a little pee spot outside near my garden, since it is WAY too far for this little pregnant mama to waddle all the way back to a toilet every damn time I gotta empty out two tablespoons of pee!  I use this orange bucket with a snap-on seat, dilute it with captured rainwater, pick an aspen tree nearby (yes, they ARE urine-loving trees) and give it some nitrogen love!

Collected urine in a bucket. I have a fancy lid for comfort. Diluted the urine. Then, I gave it to the Mexican Plum. Mexican plums are a native variety of stone fruit and this one should appreciate the extra nitrogen. I checked the mulch under the plum first and it was moist. I rinsed out the bucket and gave that to the plum too just in case.
