There is a somewhat heated debate at my house. People are taking sides and making themselves heard. What’s the fuss about you may ask?
Simply put, I have found several articles of late that have extolled the virtues of human urine in compost and as a fertilizer. I thought it would be an interesting experiment to plant two identical tomato plants side by side (in pots) and see if one received any noticeable benefits from a “special” watering.
Two sons said they would agree to provide specimens to aid me in my advances in science.
The Parsnip completely freaked out.
I believe his exact words were, “Absolutely not, under any circumstances are you to do this thing. I will not eat anything from a plant that has had…that done to it.”
Whoa buddy. In the first place, no one asked you to, and B, you eat everything from the garden that I generously apply horse and chicken manure to, but “that” is somehow abnormally taboo? And furthermore…no one asked you.
In the name of science, I have not discarded the experiment, but I have shelved it for the next little bit, but only because I have a much more interesting new project that is not causing a maelstrom of conflict.
Tune in Friday to read more about it!
In the meantime. Have a great Paisley Tuesday! ~KeriAnne
