Urinating on my Tomato Plants

There’s been a lot about urine in the news lately. Juan Manuel Marquez was saying that he was drinking his own urine leading up to his fight with Floyd Mayweather.

As fascinating as that story is, the story that piqued my interest even more was the one about urinating on your tomatoes and how it can help to give you fruits four times larger.

I decided to give it a go and urinated on my cherry tomato plant on my fire escape garden. Don’t worry before I started, I looked and gave a yell so no one got hit with some unexpected rain.

According to the research done by the Finnish team, it’s actually a mixture of urine and wood ash that is the ultimate eco-friendly fertilizer. I just used my urine.
