[permaculture] Urine-resistant plants

I collect urine in 1 gallon plastic bottles.  Some of it I dilute and put 
around a few okra plants I have planted near a concrete driveway.  Most I 
carry to my land and put around papaya trees, moringa trees and pineapples.  
I've stopped putting it in my compost pile because I think it's much better 
to use it directly on the plants.  In wet weather I don't bother to dilute 
it for the papaya and moringa trees.  I've gotten good okra, papayas and 
pineapples already.  But I intend to use most of the urine on the moringa 
trees.  The moringas have been putting out new leaves since the rains have 
started, and I am pruning off the tops of the trees.  As my production 
increases I want to include more moringa leaves in my diet.  I like the 
taste of the leaves and it's a satisfying feeling to know I can produce some 
of my own food.
