      Hello Kate,

      A classic English recipe for urine is: dilute to 32 parts water to 1 part
      urine. Male, female, isn't specified but the version you received sounds
      superstitious to me, maybe sexist.

      How to apply: you can use a watering can, or a foliar spray. In the latter
      case, obviously don't apply to edible leaves/fruit directly anytime shortly
      before consuming the produce. Not that urine is 'bad' for you--some yogis
      and others have used it as a tonic (full of minerals, for example) and
      there are many cases of people surviving by drinking urine while trapped in
      snowstorms or vehicle accidents for many days.

      Simplest method I know is: urinate right into a one-gallon watering can,
      then add water. If you want to be true to the recipe, find out how many
      ounces to your 'average' urination (it will be just a few ounces) by using
      a measuring cup. So if you usually expel four ounces, perfect--just fill
      the one-gallon can to the brim, and head for the garden!

      Subject: As an aside...

      This is a bit embarrassing, but...
      Can anyone tell me about using human urine as a soil ammendment?

      I was told that only male urine can be used, that female urine will
      harm fruit trees and plants. Is this right and can anyone tell me why?

      I have been saving my urine but now wonder if it is a toxic substance.

      Any knowledge on this subject?

      a blushing,
