    Default Pee

    I appreciate that this is a sensitive subject but I do believe it's worth discussing. Does everyone here pee in their composting bins, and if so, how do you do it? Personally I pee into a dish and then pour it into my compost daleks straight away.

    Do people here do the same, or do they pee straight into their heaps, or do they dilute it first? Maybe they collect it in a bucket for a while while before using it?

    I think a lot of us do, it's a good activator for compost.
    I first heard about it when Bob Flowerdew recommend it on a 'Question Time' and then read about it in his books - many moons ago.

    Pee in bucket in the shed, dilute it and use it

    My allotment doesn't have anywhere else for me to pee!

    I have a little bucket I pee in, and then I tend to swoosh it with a little water from the butts and into the compost it goes.

    After a few beers I just skoosh it everywhere.

    No buckets, No dilution, No additives - just 100% ME !!

    Not peed 'a la exterieur' since we've been here...but used to collect indoors, dilute and sprinkle on the lawn, herbaceous garden all the time in the UK.
    The difference was astonishing!

    Just don't tell the neighbours

    Having said that...it takes all my effort to get day time make guests to pee indoors!
    Given up now...just think of the non flushing of water saved!

    Maybe it's more 'Back to nature?'
