i know fertilizer derived from human feces is used in the US, however its only allowed for growing cattle feed and other things not directly consumed by humans

2017-09-21 01:24:15 UTC  

compost, okay

2017-09-21 01:24:31 UTC  

If you want to use human feces, put it in a compost bin with food waste and some worms

2017-09-21 01:24:43 UTC  

Give it multiple months to process

2017-09-21 01:24:51 UTC  

It sucks living in an apartment for all of this ): can't grow much of anything

2017-09-21 01:25:26 UTC  

*Aha*

2017-09-21 01:25:52 UTC  

Aha?

2017-09-21 01:25:59 UTC  

Right channel. 😏

2017-09-21 01:26:05 UTC  

Aha

If you want to grow stuff inside, keep an aquarium. You can use the water from it to grow stuff in a bed of gravel. The fish fertilize the crop, and the crop filters the water

2017-09-21 01:27:41 UTC  

What type of stuff would you suggest growing? I only have a studio apartment unfortunately

2017-09-21 01:27:58 UTC  

Start with herbs

2017-09-21 01:28:09 UTC  

Cilantro, chives

2017-09-21 01:28:23 UTC  

And a small aquarium with some goldfish or koi

2017-09-21 01:28:58 UTC  

is there any vegetables that would grow well in places like indiana?

2017-09-21 01:29:00 UTC  

How would you suggest making the gravel pit? Like what sort of frame?

2017-09-21 01:29:08 UTC  

I've got carpet so it can't be on the floor

2017-09-21 01:29:25 UTC  

Just a small Tupperware container will work fine

2017-09-21 01:29:42 UTC  

You'll want some sitting water just below the level of the gravel
