Gardening Gloves and Seedlings

Last year was the first year that we did any serious gardening. I really do prefer to have my hands in the soil, but there were a few jobs where it would have been nice to have a good pair of gardening gloves, so this year I bought some. I love them, they are so bright and cheery, and they are leather rather than that plasticy, rubbery stuff which I would imagine would make my hands feel all sweaty and gross. This year, dealing with the prickly raspberry bush will be a much nicer task. My friend Deb tells me that there really is no such thing as greenfingers so I just need to get out there and do it (well, she put it much nicer, but really that’s what I need to do). So here we are, a new spring to start working with. I’m throwing myself into it this year and though I expect plenty of failures, I’m hoping for more successes as well. Look, some of the seeds have sprouted and we are on our way. Not brilliant pictures, but I was so excited to show you that at least I haven’t managed to kill them off yet. I must admit, I still have this knot in the pit of my stomach that somehow I will manage to wipe them all out, but I’m giving it a go. We should learn plenty in the process, and besides, it sure is fun.

    Love the gloves, the seedlings look good. What are they? My intention is to plant some seeds this weekend, fingers crossed.

    Thanks Sue, they are tomato seeds. So far the brandywine pink are doing the best. Fingers crossed here too 🙂

  4. Before my husband ‘retired’ (age 52!), I did most of the gardening …… he always bought me good quality leather gloves to protect my hands! And he bought me good stepladders and paintbrushes for doing the decorating ……
