The musician has been spending time on his 4,000-acre property, which sounds like the best possible place to self-quarantine.

He also purchased a neighboring estate for $14 million, so he has plenty of room that he's not letting it go to waste (literally).

Kim Kardashian's husband is planning on creating an ecological and waste-recycling system including a vegetable garden, orchards, a skate park and even a bio pool and urine garden.

But what, pray tell, is a urine garden? Thank you for asking. It's not the title of Kanye's next song, although 'Urine Garden' would most definitely be a banger.

A urine garden handily converts human waste into plant food, if you're thinking of adding one to your own home.

According to Scientific American, the Trump superfan has the right idea about something as "urine is chock full of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus, which are the nutrients plants need to thrive—and the main ingredients in common mineral fertilizers."

West, 42, is also looking into potentially making masks and gowns for healthcare workers to help aid the shortage as the coronavirus pandemic spreads - using manufacturing resources normally devoted to his popular Yeezy brand.

Kim recently asked for help entertaining her children at their massive minimal mansion, which was met with derision from Instagram commenters.

Perhaps they could ask the children to pitch in with growing the garden?
