For years I've been buying gardening gloves: cheap ones, expensive ones, cute ones, pairs guaranteed to fit like a second skin. But after a few wearings they all ended up in the garage collecting cobwebs and other interesting things. They didn't feel right, they weren't like a second skin and when I'm gardening I need something that lets me feel the soil, the seeds, the weeds. If I'm hoeing or digging or raking I can wear a heavier glove, but not for the down on the ground work I do most of the time.
So last year I got a bright idea, I bought cheap, disposable plastic gloves and they're wonderful. No more ant bites, no more peeling my gloves off so I can sow seeds, no more pulling up plants when I meant to grab a weed. Two or three wearings and I throw them away and grab a new pair. I'm not usually in favor of disposable objects but this works so well I do it. After all I was disposing of my "real" gardening gloves every year.
