Actually i don't really care what you wear in teh garden but it might be fun to share. What i am really posting about is my new gardening shirt. On the advice of a fellow touring cyclist, i bought a fisherman's shirt from bcf the other day. The merits of such a shirt apply as well to gardening as to touring cycling and i am wearing mine in the garden until my next tour. Its merits are: while polyester, it has uv filters so no sunburn easy to wash out and doesn't stain with dirt as much as cotton can dry in a very short time even in quite humid weather these two things means its wearable every day and you only need one shirt not half a dozen. lower cost than other similar shirts which are sold in backpacking shops. also has a lot more ventilation than similar shirts sold Seems to be very well made velcro on cuffs instead of buttons pockets over breasts so no bra is necessary well my climate tests the wicking theory so i don't really rate that but i suppose compared to a cotton shirt, you are more comfortable even when sweaty. I've also recently bought some synthetic shorts which seem to as good as the shirt when compared to cotton shorts. I am also washing them and wearing them daily. And each time they come up clean with minimum scrubbing. I also wear a fisherman's hat - wide brim. Its probably about time i bought another one since this one's been left in the rain and is starting to deteriorate. Currently dad's size 12 crocs on my female size 9 feet - I like the oversized look. I should be wearing socks to prevent heels cracks from forming. But i am lazy. Exfoliating shower gloves on my hands. I love these except when a prickle goes through. These are tough gloves and don't mind being wet. And i do'nt mind either if they get wet. Probaby not so great in a cold weather if you are trying to keep warm.
