It's Day 3 of my week long blogiversary bash. I must tell you, today was almost balmy here. The sun came out, the temperature topped out in the low 50's... It really makes a girl want to get out and work in her gardens.
Gardens that take a lot of watering in the summer
and weeding year round.
And I know from experience that all that digging in the dirt,
well, it just plays havoc with my hands.
So I became a glove wearing gardener,
I go through 2 or 3 pairs per season, I wear the tips right off the gloves... that's a lot of weeding!
So, today is all about taking care of the gardener's best tool, their hands.
A pair of Atlas nitrile gloves, my favorite for how thin they are, I feel like I'm not wearing gloves at all. Gardener's scrub and lotion for their hands, made in our neighboring country of Canada. And last but not least a great little scrub brush, because even with gloves I get lots of dirt under my nails.
Even looking forward to weeding soon,
Chris at Red Gate Farm
