Thanks David! I've got some repair tape here already. I think I'll order some of the 6" though too.  
So I'll end up making two cuts to fix this then? One to take it out and one to put it back where it should be.  I was pretty surprised to see it came apart. 
I appreciate your help!

  Marcy,

  Just make a small cut where the part is now nesting.  You can easily repair the cut with poly cover mending tape.  It is available at many greenhouse supply places and works very well.  I have used it many times for your present problem and many other accidental holes.  Below are 2 reccommendations I saved from this list.

  David 

  Poly Cover Mending Tape.  We have been using a source from Colo. for a lot of 
  our misc. items like that.  Their web site is www.hydro-gardens.com.  Prices 
  are very competive.  Order a catalog from them.  We use their sticky trap's 
  for the greenhouses. Works great and really have great service from them.

  FarmTek  (800) 327-6835  sells two types of repair tape:

    Clear 8 mil film tape (2" x 108")   $6.91   #LJ7570
    SuperTape - woven polyethylene fabric tape for repairing curtains, tarps
  etc. (it is similar to but not as heavy as the end walls on FarmTek high
  tunnels)
     3" x 60'   $19.95   #101616   or    6" x 60'   $27.95   #102376

  I have used both of these products.  The 8 mil film is good for small holes
  or cuts on greenhouse poly film.  The Super tape is much heavier and
  stronger.  If you have a large tear, the 6" wide would give better
  protection.   Order both and see which one you like, plus it's good to have
  both types of tape on hand in case a repair is necessary.  A patch on the
  inside and outside is even better, especially if there is a hole  or wide
  cut to cover so the tape can stick together.

    I've got a problem after a nasty wind last week - I'm assuming, though I just noticed it yesterday. 
    The inside part of the blower unit that attaches between the two layers of poly has come loose and is at the bottom, near the frame.  
    Any ideas how I can get it put back together without taking the side and bottom loose?
    Just occured to me I might see if I can pull it up with a magnet, but even so I don't think I can reattach it working through the outer layer...
    I don't see any way out of this!
    Thanks,

      Nan,
      I use dripworks. Their commercial prices are much cheaper than their published prices and the items arrive quickly and in great condition.

        A sister market grower in Mississippi is seeking a decent irrigation supply company that can work with her to figure out best solution.  She has 24 raised beds, ranging from 4x8 to 4x48 feet (more on the way!).  She is thinking only drip, not overhead (but not buried drip either - she would prefer to cover with organic mulch but not bury in soil).

         I apologize but I couldn't figure out how to access our market farming archives...I know we have discussed this alot but I wasn't paying attention at the time...many thanks on her behalf!
