As a gardener, I love Mother Nature and everything about the outdoors. It gives me a breather to step away from technology and feel life with my own hands. However, I am aware of the flipside; that gardening always seems to spoil my hands, so much so that I spend more time on aftercare of my hands than in actual gardening. After long hours of gardening, one’s hands are bound to get cracks on them, with dirt embedded in between the fingernails, and the skin feels stretched and dry. It is an uncomfortable feeling, especially on a weekend when family and friends are visiting.
All this can be avoided if one gets into the habit of wearing gloves when entering the garden. Wait a minute! Unfortunately, there is one slight problem.
