Charmion, was everything in that space accessible until now? The old "clear a path" option doesn't work?

I have soaker hoses stored in the greenhouse to set up in the garden (not used last year when I didn't have much of a garden after knee surgery). It has been several days since our last big rain, and now the trick is to flocculate the soil so everything doesn't rot in place when watering commences. Hydrogen peroxide or shampoo added to a watering can helps. I'm not sure how the science of it works, but some of the folks who participate in my gardening forum have been playing around with this stuff for years. I also have to ascertain the amount of Cookie-the-destructive-puppy damage to the hoses, and reassemble my watering timer and build a barrier to keep her from shredding the wires again.

My 60/40 cloth patio cover is a hot mess, all shredded, and I need to put up the tarp that usually hangs off the side to keep the sun from hitting my glass back door. I think I need to cover the entire thing with the same kind of loose-weave tarp that I use for the sunshade; I was going to do hard plastic, but that involves a great deal of ladder work.
