I can't believe I'm doing this badge bit but it seems like an easy one. Also, we have a runner bean plant still going and I read it's beneficial for beans.

It's very rainy outside, so the soil is defintiley very wet. Here I am peeing on a Yellow Dock plant. It's roots are medicinal and great for treating constipation. It makes great big leaves, which requires nitrogen. That's why I thought it would appreciate my offering.

Can't believe it took me so long to spot this BB! We do this anyway.


We've found that by cycling our pumpkins (in this case), and other nutrient-loving plants through a cycle of urine every four weeks, and exudates from our worm bins every four weeks (but the two cycles are two weeks apart, so the plants get fed fortnightly), we get some excellent results.


Bonus image of a 17-pounder and some others we pulled in this morning.

Staff note (Paul Fookes) :

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
It is best practice to label each photo with the BB proof.  EG: "Urine being diluted" and "mixture being given to [plant name]"
Best wishes for future BBs.

I'm confused about what I've missed?



A. Urine is being applied (according to instructions, using a container for transfer is okay).
B. The plant is visible, and the soil is moist (it's been raining for the last two days).
C. I've reported on the urine-loving plant.

I'm not being difficult, I just don't see the missed requirement. 😅

**Edit:** Thanks for the clarification 🙏🏼.
