As we all know, wearing gardening gloves can help prevent skin rashes, infections, and some types of poisoning. Gardening gloves are your first line of defense in the garden.
I never go weeding without my shield.
Well, I was not always like that. When I was young, I didn’t have gloves, just grabbed weeds with my raw hands. At first, nothing happened. I don’t even know that the “Gardening Gloves” actually exist.
However, several days later I started to notice an itchy after I’ve done with the gardening job. I tried to ignore it for a moment, then the pain stopped me. My hand was swollen up.! Whatever I had pulled out hurt me, a lot.
After that, I searched on Amazon for Gloves, and I found my shield. I never let my guard down.
After all, weeds have some good adaptations to stop you from pulling them out. The only way to beat their stingers and strong roots are with a trowel and a gardening glove.
I now wear gardening gloves all the time whenever I am weeding the garden. It seems the best defense against weeds with thistles and thorns. The gardening gloves also help me avoid getting bitten by insects.
The garden needs insects for pollinating the flowers, but the insects like do not need spiders to bite me.
In gardening, as in life, you learn by your mistakes. You learn by trial and error. Just like I found out that I need to wear my gardening gloves, a shield, more often to protect myself.
