Buy 150 kg of fertilizer for my farm

From the money I received last time, I bought Peatmoss, a medium used to propagate seedlings. I propagated 10,000 cabbage seedlings that we shall be transplanting to the open farm very soon.
Without the medium, I would have not been able to propagate the seedlings and I would have had to buy the seedlings from other farmers. This would have cost me 50,000 shillings ($333). With the medium I propagated up to 50,000 seedlings. This saved me $1,600!
