This afternoon I prepared the garden bed in the greenhouse for the tomatoes and peppers. Of course I deployed my secret weapon. Alpaca poop. Laying the red plastic was a fiasco. I was actually muttering curse words on several occasions. Here is a chronology of the process.
Laid a sheet of red plastic on bed. Cut a hole for the tomato and started excavating. A much as I dug, the soil just kept falling from the sides into the hole. After spending about 15 minutes digging, I gave up. Peeled the plastic back. Cut it into strips and started anew. Finally, red strips and clothes pins saved the day.
