I double checked the price of Diatomacious Earth and it is indeed $3.99 per kilo.
When we returned home, I got back into the yard. We installed the tomato hanging bar in the greenhouse. I cut a swath through the snowberry bushes so that we can walk around the greenhouse for maintenance etc. Also, it may cut down on the number of slugs we get.
I asked Allan if he had a few 2x2's or 2x4's that I could pound into the ground at three corners of the garden as a hose stop. He had three steel bars! I'm sure they came from the same mystery place as the 14 foot, two inch tubing that is now hanging in the greenhouse. I have covered the straw, it looks like it could rain later. My arms are sore and I'm pooped.
