I hope those photos will do for a BB. How can I make clear it really is urine in that black bucket? I hope you trust me.


My black bucket with a mix of urine and greywater from the sink.


From the bucket into the waterer.


I used it to water those tiny new plants. Will they grow into real beets?

No pics handy, but with the kids home, us gentlemen can fill a 5 gallon bucket every couple of days or so.  I've been dispersing it around our perimeter fence which happens to be planted with fruit/nut trees in an effort to ward off dogs that attack our sheep.  Seems to be working...  When available, I add biochar to the collection bucket.  Helps keep the odor down duting the collection phase and ends up on the trees.

I can't say with certainty that this is first time I've taken a picture of myself peeing but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've posted it online. The internet tells me that my banana plants like a good urine diet, so here we go.

I had never heard of using urine as fertilizer before finding this BB. I'm excited to keep at it because I haven't been using any fertilizer before today!

Also found a great use for this weird animal cracker container.

I fertilized one of my tomato plants this go round. I grew them off of cuttings from the first season's tomatoes as an experiment... needless to say, its growth does not compare to that of the one plant I have grown from seed! Hope the fertilizer will bring it up to speed.
