    I have seen boxes of assorted fiber washers in the non food sections of discount stores and also tool tables in the flea market if they ever open again.

    The No Dig book has lots about yields in it. Can recommend!

    Is there a yields page? The page shows costs and time to maturity, but not yields. I think I have yield comparisons for a dig - no dig experiment. All depends on the weather, location, etc. I guess.

    The syringe will be for spraying the caterpillars - they looked a lot like bicycle pumps.

    What's the syringe for, and why does it cost as much as a wheelbarrow?

    I posted this once before ( years ago) but I can't find it so I tracked the original source down again. attached if a photo of a page in one of my old books that gives the costs of a setting up a 10 rood allotment ... Sadly for you youngsters its in £ s d ( old money) not £ p New money but 20s is a pound, a shilling is 5p so I'm sure you can work it out.

    If I can find it I think there was a spreadsheet that went with it that listed all the costs and a tab for harvests and approximate costs had you bought it and it gave you a balance sheet. Just for interest really
