How often can I add urine to my compost heap?

I recently gotten into gardening and read about the wonders of composting. The nitrogen in urine is great for the compost but i don't know how often I am supposed to add urine to it.

  • You can do it all the time. If you drink lots of water, that dilutes your urine. If you drink very little, it will be quite concentrated. Either way it's about the same amount of "active ingredients." Personally, I put some old fish tank water into the garden and compost when I do water changes. That stuff has way more dissolved organic compounds than urine.

    I will mention that it's worth having a balance of carbon and nitrogen (yard clippings vs food scraps) in your compost for peak efficiency. Though it will be fine even if you pay no attention.
