You know what works well in a garden?

Piss works well in a garden.

There, I said it and I stand by it. You take healthy unmedicated urine collected in a clean jar, dilute it with water in about a 1:10 ratio, and pour it on your soil and/or your compost pile (without getting it on the edible parts of your food plants, although even that wouldn't really matter after a good rain rinse), and you've got high-quality, fast-acting fertilizer rich in potash and nitrogen.

It may be euphemistically referred to as "flowerdew" in honor of the renowned British organic gardening expert Bob Flowerdew who promotes urine use in gardening.

Plus, it reduces wasteful water use from flushing perfectly good liquid fertilizer into the sewage system several times a day.
