I can't begin to tell you how beautiful the weather has been here. Cool nights, warm sunny days, slight South breeze, thunder boomers in the distance. It makes it doubly hard for me to stay inside, so I don't.
Still working on down sizing the landscaping jungle, and putting in a small veggie garden. Home grown always tastes better.
I used to go through garden gloves really fast, I quit buying the cutesie girly ones long ago. Went on to plastic, leather, canvas, you name it, I burned right through them all. And then I found The gloves, they are the best all around gloves for me, and have held up through it all: rocks, rope lava rocks, gravel, clay soil, rough hoe handles, loppers, chain saws, brush... well you get the idea.
They are tough, lessen hand fatigue and are inexpensive. So far, I can only find them (Mad Grip Pro Palm Knuckler Performance Work Glove w/grip injection tech) online through Amazon or sometimes HD. The only downside that I have found is after a few hours they make your hands smell like old gym shoes, really nasty gym shoes... But you were going to wash your hands when you came in anyway, right.
