Without a doubt, in the general world, women do not have the same reverence for duct tape that men do. In the garden I use these metal pieces to create large hoops. They originally came with little sleeves for this purpose, but that made too big a hoop, and singly, too small. And in one of those magic DUH moments, I realized I could make them any size I want, and I do. What wasn’t done, was to finish this project, attend to the last detail, which was to find a way to completely cover the sharp end pieces. They have cut through shade cloths, frost blankets, and my skin.
And in another DUH moment, there was DUCT TAPE.
