OMG, we need a photo for the Prom thread, do you have one?

In a hurry this morning but I've got a few things to post here. Be back soon with photos and tips. Whistling

This waits for me as soon as I step into my garage on my way outside. The water from the hose keeps me cool.

That's great Teri. Is it made out of a canvas type of cloth?

Looks like a Carhart item - I have one of their winter coats and I love it for farm work.

Carhart has a full line of canvas coats, overalls, gloves & I don't know what. You usually find them in Farmer's co-ops, Tractor supplies or anywhere work or farm people would shop, it's pretty tough stuff. Not cheap, but very durable.

It is Carhart, although my grandson insists that it's Bob The Builder.

Teri, Could you mosey on over to the Magpie Garden Chat thread. Pam was asking about the name of the Ebay vendor where you bought the Crepe Myrtles.

Teri that you posed those things, and not that you neatly arrange that stuff each time you take it off in the garage, and it sits there looking all pretty while not in use., Please, before I feel like a total slob.....

Rolling on the floor laughing I was thinking the same thing Sally! Whistling

Teri, I love the hat! I've been thinking about adding a flower to mine...it's pretty boring. Thumbs down

My hat is probably the best "apparel" I've ever bought for myself. You've all "seen" it but I have to rave about it because it's been a lifesaver for me! I don't really like wearing hats, any that tie under the chin bug the heck out of me, visors give me a headache and I vowed to never wear a baseball hat again! Years ago someone took a picture of me when I was wearing one and when my uncle saw the photo he asked who the "guy" was and he was serious! Rolling my eyes. Even though some people have told me they would never wear a hat like mine because it doesn't protect their head from the sun, fortunately for now I've got enough hair to keep me covered! Big Grin It has an elastic band in the brim so I can pull it down and it stays put - even stayed on my head one summer when we were flying across the lake in a boat! Plus the brim is extra wide so it even shades the back of my neck and shoulders. Thumbs up

Stormy, your Columbia hat reminds me of the more expensive hat I bought for Rick a few years back. It's a really nice one and he looks pretty "classy" when he wears it. Hilarious! However, he rarely wears it, instead choosing to wear his favorite hat - a really cheap one he picked up at Food Lion years ago. He was desperate for something to cover his head one weekend when we were exhibiting in Richmond and the temperatures were soaring! Not only does it have holes in it from wear and tear but it's "see through" so it doesn't really provide much protection from the sun! Grumbling The "embellishments" are feathers he's collected here and there, one is from Belize! Big Grin

I've never been one to wear gloves while gardening, although once in a while I will throw on a pair of Atlas gloves if it's early in the season and the soil is cold! Occasionally I'll wear the cheap disposable gloves because there's no weight to them and almost feel natural, I want to "feel" the soil! Whistling Since they're usually the cheaper ones, one size fits all, the fingers are usually too long and they start to slide. However, the other day I discovered a "trick" to keep them on! While working on my concrete project I had to slather some petroleum jelly on the platter I was going to fill with concrete. When I pulled on my disposable gloves to start mixing the concrete, no "floppy" fingers...the jelly held the gloves in place! Thumbs up I might not have the jelly handy for gardening but I'm thinking any lotion would work?

This is another favorite in our gardening gear. We found them years ago at Cabela's in the hunting section of all places! http://tinyurl.com/Cabela-Pockets Their design has changed a little since we bought them but basically the same concept. The rear pouch is handy and a trowel fits perfectly! I don't wear mine a lot now, I think they make me look fat! Hilarious! Our friends really liked them and bought them after seeing ours. Not only are they useful in the garden but they were real handy when we were ALL collecting rocks in Michigan one summer - we call ourselves the "Pocket People"! Big Grin

Sally,

I posed them. If I had taken a picture of the way I just chuck them aside when I'm HOT and BURNED OUT, you would never know what you were looking at.

Wow, Those are great Deb! I've often found neat and useful things to aid in gardening at the hunting & fishing shops and Cabelas is the best. The Mega store that they have here in PA is a "destination" complete with tour buses lined up in the parking lot.

Your hat makes a lot of sense to me. The open top would make me sweat less, but the wide brims would protect my face and neck. I'll keep my eyes open for a buy on one. Thumbs up

Again, like tools, wouldn't it be nice if you could rent these things first so you could try them before actually investing in them? I'm tired of buying things and then finding that they don't work for me. It is wasted money that becomes nuisance clutter. Thumbs down

I agree Unfortunately Rick's 'expensive' hat has fallen into that category. Thumbs down

Hilarious! We don't usually shop in the "hunting and fishing" area but the pockets were definitely a good find! They are really useful but since I don't care for that 'look' much I decided to make myself a more attractive apron. I ordered fabric last March and actually have it almost finished, just have to add the waist strings and it will be done! I wanted a prettier fabric but was hung up on finding one with a dragonfly print. Lovey dubby Unfortunately the only one I could find was a design in black but at least it won't show the dirt! Thumbs up

DEb, LOVE that black print. I get so tired of always washing those aprons and now they don't ever really come out looking "clean". It wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't always forgetting to take them off when I go out to run a quick errand. MY GF says she is going to make me another one. She is always sewing. I could make one or two myself in the winter when I'm not always in the garden.
