These are my ‘gardening’ pants. I bought them a while back from the local Salvation Army on half price day, they cost $2.00. They are nice heavy weight cotton duck climbing pants from Kavu.
Last summer, I filled these babies out…full, very full. They originally came with a cool web belt, that I summarily tossed aside. What use was that thing anyhow, I couldn’t even button up the top. Now I wish I’d saved it. I can slip these pants off without undoing the button, and thankfully my garden is very private since I have a bad case of ‘plumber cleavage’ when I bend down….but it hasn’t frightened off any weeds or pests, dang.
So, it’s time for some new gardening pants. Any suggestions? They have to be sturdy, with double knees is a bonus! These Kavu’s have a double seat. The ideal pair should also be thrifty! Color is not terribly important, except no red. Send in your suggestions 😉
Just so you don’t think, “Oh man, I came all the way over to the homestead to look at a pair of crusty ol’ garden britches,” c’mon…I know that’s what you were thinking…Here’s a few lovelies that are in full bloom today as a parting gift.
