Last year I purchased a pair of pink gloves in Dollar Tree that seemed to be made out of knit with the palm side having little “grabber dots”. They held up better than your average el cheapo garden glove through spring, summer, fall and winter. One of the gloves did spring a leak where the knit cuff connected to the glove but I always washed them after each gardening adventure to allow the washer and dryer to tighten the threads. Of course, I didn’t yank on that glove, either.
Everything is looking like spring here – the stores are full of new pots, huge seed displays, piles of mulch, and everything else that goes with gardening. Not to mention new spring growth on oak and maple trees. So I made a special trip to Dollar Tree to check on those gloves. This year their “Jersey Garden Gloves” were pink, royal blue, olive green, purple and still only a dollar.
Of course, I had to snap up a purple pair to wear with my purple underwear if I ever get around to shopping for unmentionables. It seemed only right considering the amount of ribbing I have endured about the purple undies.
This reminds me. You won’t want to miss World Naked Gardening Day which has been celebrated internationally on either May 3rd or May 14. I’m not sure which date has been selected for this year. Rest assured that I will not be in my yard wearing only my purple garden gloves because the hootin’, hollerin’ and pointin’ from my neighbors would be bad for my self-esteem.
