    Found two places here in NC that sells food-grade DE so I took a ride. It was either 60miles of city traffic or 60 miles of highway. I chose the highway. Over in Morganton, I found Belle Farm Store. OOOOOOOOOOOOOH!! Old timey farm supply store that's got everything you need! And of course what did I hear when I walked in the door?!!!!!!!!! PEEP PEEP PEEP PEEP!!!!!!

    Just look.....yeah right! I had planned on getting a few in a couple of weeks. BOY DOES TIME FLY OR WHAT?!!

    No idea what I have. The lady at the store wasn't sure either. I apologize in advance for the lousy pictures. I've got an old digital. One of the 1st ones that ever came out at WallyWorld.

    Care to take a guess??!!

    I can't tell for sure. I do know you folks in the warmer climates are fortunate to have the stores with the day old peeps in them.

    Way to go....

    I dont have any idea about your new peeps! I did want to ask where you found the other store with food grade DE? I am in NC and would love to save on shipping if it is anywhere near where I travel.
    Thanks
