Nonna was babysitting and decided to go out and work in the yard. She called me over,
“Will you get me a pair of panties?”
“I need something to wear on my head to keep the sweat off of my face.”
My grandmother commanded respect. So, I obediently retrieved a pair of panties from my mom’s dresser drawer and brought them to Nonna. She proceeded to put them on her head and carry on with the task of pulling weeds.
I take after my grandmother in many ways, but I draw the line at wearing panties on my head while I garden.
My normal garden wear is a t-shirt, bandana and baggy shorts. And at the end of my time outdoors, I am drenched in sweat. My shorts so soaked that they are barely hanging onto my body. The bandana is always wet through and through. You get the idea.
So, I was thrilled to get the chance to try out the gardening clothes by Duluth Trading Company. Their clothes are designed to keep you dry and cool while you sweat.
I worked in the yard for about three hours. Starting in the backyard, where I’m working on bringing the design plans to life. I’m amazed at what a difference a little trellis and a vine made on this section of the fence. Here’s the before,
And the after,
There was work to do in the front yard, too.
Planting, transplanting, and container gardening.
And after all of that hard work and sweat,
My clothes were still dry.

I think Diane is on to something. I felt like a professional gardener in my new outfit. And now that I know how comfortable and practical the clothes are, I’m hoping to add to my gardening wardrobe. And thank you, Duluth Trading Company for sparing me from wearing panties on my head. 😉
