My hubbie has always peed over his compost - well he peed into a watering can in the garage and then poured it over the compost - he didn't want to frighten our 93 year old neighbour!! Anyway I read somewhere, and I can't for the life of me remember where - some book on composting - that only male pee is any good for the compost heap. Apparently us girlies have far too many hormones in our pee and that isn't so good for the compost!!!
Slightly off subject, but has anyone seen that !!!!!! Strawbridge (used to be on Scrapheap Challenge and that war gadget programme) TV show on at the moment (tues BBC2 8.30) where they are trying to be as green as possible (also self sufficient - good-life style) it is also (as we all know) very moneysaving-esque too !!! :j
Anyway to the point - there was a guy who was so green (he was a pice of brocoli :rotfl: ) he claimed to only throw away one carrier bag worth of rubbish every MONTH. He either composted, recycled, or reused.
NOW THAT IS MONEY SAVING !!! :T
I wish I could be that good, it would save on bin-bags !!
Is this true? Can anyone else confirm>
Take a 6pt plastic milk container and cut in half. Fill with the compost you've made and use the bases as large pots for sewing runner bean seeds. Also, divide into two with a piece of thick cardboard and get two 'pots' for the price of one. Cut a 1 litre orange juice carton in half and use the base as seed pot for tomato seeds. Discard when planting them out. (or keep and reuse next year!) Remember to make a few holes in the bottom for drainage.
