In a garden blog I read recently, a person asked “What’s a good store on-line to buy some garden work shirts?” What??!! People actually buy new gardening clothes? I thought you were supposed to garden in old clothes that you would have already thrown out if you weren’t a gardener. That old shirt with bleach spots on it, those pants that went out of style in the 1990’s - those are gardening clothes. You can recycle from your wardrobe for years. I know what I’m talking about.
OK. Once when I ran out of old clothes in which to garden, I went to the Salvation Army on half-price day and bought more. I spent about $5 for two pairs of pants and one long sleeved shirt. I thought it was wasteful, but it couldn’t be helped. I needed something to garden in.
To purchase gardening clothes on-line and pay shipping to get them is a radical concept in my cheap, little world. What do you garden in? And where did you get it?
