I’ve been meaning to write a post for some time about products I love for yardwork and gardening. I just haven’t gotten around to it until now.
Note: I am not being paid to promote any of these products. I just happen to love them.
Women’s Heirloom Gardening Overalls from Duluth Trading Co.: I bought these on clearance, otherwise they would have been a bit steep for me. But they’re worth the full price. They have tons of pockets. They offer UPF 50 sun protection and repel dirt and water. They are also super comfy. The description doesn’t mention this, but they have loops and snaps on the legs to convert these to capri-length if you want. They run large, so size down.
Sloggers: I have these in clog and boot form. Perfect footwear for gardening because they’re waterproof and durable. I’ve had the clogs for years and they are still like new. I bought the boots shortly after we moved to this house because the yard gets so muddy when we get a lot of rain. Plus, they come in cute designs.
Sun Protection Arm Sleeves from Sunday Afternoons: Yes, you could just wear long sleeves. But I prefer to wear these, especially when I’m picking my way through thorny blackberry brambles. They snag on the thorns, but they don’t tear like clothing does. They also offer UV-protection. I have hand covers on mine, which offer an extra layer of protection under my gloves.
Bandanas: I ordered some pretty ones from REI that aren’t the typical Western paisley design. Brand doesn’t matter so much to me. What matters is that they’re 100% cotton. These are great for tying back my hair (protecting it from the sun and keeping it out of the way), and tying around my neck for sun/bug protection.
CobraHead Weeder & Cultivator: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tool! It’s especially good for popping up dandelions by the root. I have the original, but I would love to get the long handle.
