Last spring, I was a gardener who almost never wore gloves. This year, I reached for them before I ever set foot in the garden. Yeah, I'm a believer! Here's why you should wear them, too:
10. The spring weather can turn cold in an instant.
9. Wearing gloves makes you look like you know what you're doing, even if you don't.
8. Cats think the world is their litter box.
7. There are far better ways to spend your time than cleaning dirt from under your fingernails.
6. Toads hibernate in the strangest places.
5. Miscanthus cuts are no fun at all.
3. Mud treatments are highly overrated.
2. There's a fungus amongus in that there dirt!
You already know I really like Ethel gloves - I extolled their virtues last year in another blog post. I still feel the same about them and have been using them this spring while doing clean-up.
What I like best about them is the fit. They fit so well that I had no problems picking up all those darn acorns that rolled into each corner of the garden and embedded themselves in the dirt over the winter. If I never see another acorn as long as I live, I think I can die happy.
Those nice folks over at Ethel Gloves told me I could give away a pair of their ultra-cool gloves to one of my readers. Someone is going to get lucky! What you need to do is leave a comment here, stating which style of Ethel Gloves you'd like to win. You can't just say, "Nice post." At midnight on Friday evening, April 3rd, I'll randomly pick one of the qualifying comments and the author will receive a free pair of Ethel gloves of their choice.
If you're in a hurry to get your gloves and you're one of those who never wins anything anyway, then have I got a deal for you! Just use the code LITTLEACRE when you order from their website and you'll get 10% off your purchase (good through Friday, April 24, 2009). Might as well order enough to share with all your friends and neighbors, because the shipping is free, too. See, I told you they were nice!
So before you leave a comment, head on over to Ethel Gloves and have a look at their designs and while you're there, be sure and read more about what makes them so special. The web site is as beautiful as their gloves, and just as easy to use. So get going already!
