We were having drain problems from our kitchen sink and laundry washing machine which would join together and then go out to the street. Plumbers wanted too much to run a camera down the pipe to see what was the problem. Anyway…until we could figure out what the problem was, we ran an old swimming pool pump hose from our homes drain access port and just let the water from our kitchen drain to run out to the center of the yard where no grass was growing. Within a week we had green grass coming up in that area…. we moved the hose…and again, green grass started coming up. Kitchen drain water appears to be a good nutrient as long as your not putting chemicals or heavy grease down your sink.

Matthew Niedbala says:

Mix urine with bonemeal and wood ash until it has a thick paste consistency and blam you have an npkcm fertilizer (I just guessed the abbreviations you have nitrogen phosphorus potassium calcium and magnesium in that mix). Leaves and any compost has the rest of what you need. Hell the right microorganisms can get all the plants' needed nutrients from the dirt, but it's good to put things like rock dusts composts and organic fertilizers to boost this and give more to the plant and the fungi and bacteria.

TimeforaChange InGovernment says:

HELP! Anyone' suggestions to grow a garden over invasive tree roots? Last year, roots choked veggie garden, raised beds, and straw bale garden. I started w/@ 6 layers of cardboard, 2 layers of ground cover/weed cloth, 12" layer of straw, then compost/soil, before planting my plants. I have a large open yard, but surrounded by trees. The tree roots even grew up behind my composter, then weaved themselves into my compost. Lost more than half of my compost. Roots were so bound, could not shake out compost.
Limited income. Can't afford $3K to cut down trees. Lost 2 to storms, but remaining roots are shooting babies up all over.. No local community composting or excavation sites.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated! TIA

Thomas Cochran says:

I built a small aquaponic unit a couple of years ago and the fish died in the Texas summer heat. To keep the cycle going, I used about 1 "pee's" worth of urine every couple of days in the system. Within a little over a month, I grew about 15 lbs of cucumbers. I grew more food without fish than I did with fish. Pee pee is good stuff!

Can I use urine on my grass

Hail No Hero says:

I've started using Urine as a fertilizer and it is working awesome! Dilute it with water (1:10) and apply it at the base of the plant, use 1:20 for foliar feedings. I fertilize 4 times a month when they are still young, and then twice a month thereafter for the remainder of its life. My Squash is growing MASSIVE healthy leaves and all I've used is this method. Never had a squash plant this healthy and vigorous in growth!! That is because the soil I planted this Zucchini plant in was NOT rich in minerals. It was very clay like and had very minimal nutritional value for the plant. But still, the Urine has given it all it needs to grow healthy and big! It's free, it's sustainable and the when you feed the plants, they feed you back and thus the cycle never ends. Ain't that beautiful? It's how it should always be. Urine has all the nutrients the plants need, N P & K in perfect doses. Along with all the other organic minerals and nutrients found in Urine. It's truly amazing and every gardener should utilize it and not waste money on synthetic fertilizers. You're also doing the world better! A happy Cheers my fellow gardeners.

can I plant tropics in texas

Björn Felten says:

I really love all your contributions.

One thought: when you weed out your tomato plant, isn't all the clippings filled with all the nutriants that you added? So if you save all the clippings in a bucket of water, shouldn't you get the perfect tomato tea for future tomato plant?. Especially with a little pee added to it…? 😎

Nevertheless, keep up your good work!

Jonathan Carroll says:

i have been fertilizing with urine for years. the trick is dilute it. i mix 3-1 rain water with urine. this creates an excellent source of nitrogen. i have had plants that have yellowing leaves and are struggling. i apply the diluted urine and they turn a deep green and thrive.
