Personally, I would rather see a woman with Dirt on her hands and under fingernails than one that has all polished manicured fingernails.
One says I am responsible and a worker
says.. High Maintenance...
we could start our own thread with this topic.......Bra-less, grungy clothes, and check out the Feet.....I love the feel of the dirt under my toes.....
It is best to wear gloves to avoid the callusses and rough skin. I never go out side with out a pair of gloves in My back pocket. As I always find myself in the garden no matter what I went out side for in the first place.
Ain't that the truth! <VBG>
Yup. Take care of your hands, they are the one tool you use for everything.
I've found lightweight nitrile-palmed work gloves to meet my needs in many respects: keep my hands clean, provide better grip, a good fitting pair almost feels like surgical gloves yet are pretty puncture resistant, palms are moisture (think water/mud/chemical) resistant, but fabric backs allow for some airflow.
