Stuck in Muck0

I enjoy gardening, though my pleasure comes almost exclusively from my love of food.  Sure, flowers are pretty—but you can’t eat most of them.  I grow various herbs, such as rosemary, basil, and green onion.

But, as we all know, gardening can be hard work—especially in my neck of the woods (Florida) where it can be be ridiculously hot.  So comfort is an important issue when digging holes for plants.

I usually just wear flip-flops—which is a big safety no-no when dealing with sharp instruments like shovels.  Plus my feet get all dirty and wet.  That’s why I plan on getting a pair of these at my first opportunity:


These are the Daily Garden Shoes from MuckBoots.

Designed to be 100 percent waterproof, these garden shoes are not only durable, but stylish as well. I’m the type who’d wear them out for dinner – and ignore the odd looks.   

They’re built of a natural rubber upper over an insulated shell.  The inside bottoms are lined with a moisture-control lining.  The exterior is dirt-resistant and easy to clean.

Prices hover around the $50 range.

What do you think - rubber shoes or flip flops?  What do you wear in the garden?  On your feet, that is.
