For the first years of my gardening life I used the cheap checkout gardening gloves. You know the ones… The ones you grab in the checkout line with those pretty prints.
They stick to your hands… yet you can’t grab anything. The dirt gets in the top of your gloves. But you’re drawn in by those pretty colors and prints.
My husband got sick of my complaints one year and bought these one’s at Home Depot. The ones that they have in the case locked up. See, I never would spend money on the gloves myself. My money would have rather gone to more flowers. But these bad boys I have had for over 3 years. And to top it off I actually left these outside over winter one year. They got hidden under a concrete pot that I tipped over. They don’t look beautiful but they still work. No dirty fingernails. They don’t get all hard after they dry.
Pamper yourself and upgrade your gloves. You’ll thank me.
