Gloves or no gloves? Hand care after gardening

Sometimes a post on our Flea Market Gardening Facebook page just strikes a chord with everyone.  This one did and the result is many fine tips for caring for our hands after gardening. After all we still want to have soft hands…  Where do you stand on wearing gloves?

Awful hands!

Awful hands!

“My hands! I’m working them to the bone, and today THIS is what they feel like! Dirt under my fingernails just like when I was a kid! I pick up cement stepping stones to move them and feel the rough surface tear at my skin. What really gets me is the rough SIDES of my fingers that have tiny cracks. I should wear gloves more, I know, but I need someone to sternly tell me to do so! :-)

 What do you all do to care for your hands after gardening? ~~ Sue

Deborah L. Cutter- Well, like you, I don’t like to wear gloves. I make sure I have a fingernail brush to get the dirt from under the nails when done and lots of lotion!

Emily Diaz– The Satin hands system from Mary Kay is a lifesaver to me after gardening!! I love it!!!

Tally Calvert– Mary Kay pretty hands and feet works about the best to get them clean, along with sandpaper lol! I have gotten better at wearing gloves and found that applying hand lotion first really helps, I have bottles on all the porches, by the chicken coop…

Sue Walker- Sue, go to the store and purchase some “Bag Balm” (used to keep cow’s udders from drying and cracking) . . slather this on your hands and put on cotton gloves or socks to go to bed at night . . you’ll be amazed how much better they look/feel in the morning!

Carlyss June Van Ness– I put a heavy hand lotion on before I go out and then again when I come in. It seems to help.

Trish Hatcher Cooper– No Cracks Cream – works WONDERS!

Melissa Sisk– My favorite gloves are a $12 dollar pair from Wal Mart that are thin on the backs with an almost mesh material and very thin leather on the fronts. They velcro shut and I can actually forget I’m wearing them which saves my hands soooo much pain when working with tools or moving heavy/sharp stuff. I still weed mostly barehanded so I can get the little stuff, but the gloves make a big difference.

Bianca Tripodi Pickard– Camphor cream… an amazing product for gardening, sun care, dry and cracked skin… so many uses… a must in my home..

Merik Hollis King– Wear the gloves and after you are finished and washed up use Alpha Keri oil. Good stuff!

Tender Lee– Gloves save your hands, especially leather. Cost a tad more, but last 10x longer, and wear like a tough 2nd skin. I get the 3 pack at Sam’s every few years, takes a long time to wear out the index finger, which happens quickly with fabric gloves.

Karen Davis- Make a paste of olive oil and salt or sugar and rub all over your hands and then rinse.

Gayla Jones– My grandma taught me that bleach water in a bowl will whiten nails, also if you put lotion on your hands an do dish’s or wear glove “the plastic ones” while you are working in the garden your hand will be soft once again

Sheila Coates King– Quick and simple… I scrape a dove soap bar with my nails which puts a little under my nails, and then I slip on my garden gloves. Also, I keep a little nail file by my sink and carry small lotions with me everywhere. I even lotion my hands in the car at a stop light. Easy, breezy. :

Angela Dobes Carver– I don’t use gloves either. I use Palmer’s cocoa butter and have a file that I use to smooth the rough skin.

Liz Miller Davey- Bert’s Bees Hand care.

Dreama Bender– Hello Sue !! I’m the same way , When I fuss at my self cause my hands look bad , my hubby always has to remind me, about the gloves he bought , that I never use.

Eliza Jayasinha– Dirty hands are the crown of a Gardner. But do wear gloves tho’ I too hate it.

Shirley Womack Calhoun– Wash the dishes in the sink, not dishwasher… w/lots of BLUE DAWN DISH LIQUID. Then I use a moisture magnet hand/body satin lotion I get from http://www.melaleuca.com … put on a pair of white cotton gloves & n the morning start all over…. but w/gardening gloves.

Marcia Chretien– Mary Kay here to…put it on at bedtime….:)

Aminah Luqman– I do the dishes after I garden, so my nails get clean and my dishes do, too! Then I deep moisturize with organic coconut oil or some good Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I’m already in the kitchen, so that works out pretty well. :o) (My daughter, Madeline, a cosmetologist agrees with this one because she says, only oils like coconut and olive have molecules small enough to penetrate your skin’s cells.)

Joyce England– I use gloves most of the time but sometimes I just forget and start grabbing Mary Kay night cream is what I use I rub it into my hands real good and try to keep still until I fall asleep.

Diane Tyler Button– Wear gloves for everything! Well, almost. I have to force myself but it makes a huge difference. Use Dove soap to bathe. Have hand cream by every sink and use it. When I come in from the garden and wash my hands, I dry them well and pour hydrogen peroxide all over my hands and nails, under my nails, then rinse, dry and put on hand cream. Makes a difference!!!!

Ericka Possehn Ducret- Gloves! I wash them with a cream wash and then use Crabtree & Evelyn’s gardening cream…fabulous stuff that is…I need to hunt some more down before my hard work begins!

Monika Clauberg- Grief, that sounds just like me. Had a pedicure yesterday, my feet are fabulous, but…..MY HANDS are in terrible shape for the same reason. I use “now solutions shea butter” from Whole Foods, comes in a 7oz little pot. It helps, but is very greasy for a while.

Shirley Gaydos Brown– Sternly telling you to wear gloves always!!!!!!!

Lauraine Piquette– First off, I start by scratching a bar of soap to get it under my nails instead of dirt. An old trick I learned in garden club. I always wear gloves and use tools instead of hands to pull weeds. It really helps. Use plenty of cream prior to gloves. I use cotton gloves first then mud gloves. Hope this helps.

Janet Page- Get a pair of Atlas 370 Garden Club Gloves… It will change your life and you will always show up with a perfect manicure. Trust me you will have more than one pair.

Kathy Taylor– I stopped using mesh made gloves for outside work because I almost lost the diamonds out of my wedding set. My body temp got so Hot it heated up the gold and the setting separated…with the pull of the mesh. Heads Up!

Kelli Clukey Richardson– lately I can’t get enough hand cream…my hands are so dry and I promised myself “this year I would wear gloves more”…. well the year is young…. today I think I will rototill some more ,even though its warm its to early to plant a lot of stuff….

Kay Comer- PRID in a little tiny orange tin at most drug stores and Wal-Mart $4…will stop the pain and heal those finger cracks almost instantly…pain goes away instantly and if you rub it in good before bed…they’re healed the next morning….ready to start fresh with new cracks :-) I can’t work in gloves either and we have 5 acres in cottage gardens…a wildflower bluff…a open spot in a woodland meadow that I’m just now working up….and a 2 1/2 acre secret garden….and my hands look like a farmers hands…..I first clean with GOOP….then put some clorox in the kitchen sink and soak my hands for a bit in that….and scrub with a tooth brush to get it out from around fingernails…..it’s a constant hastle…trying to keep neat and clean hands in the spring for me…..but SO worth it… :-)

Shirley B. Carlen– Today I am making lotion bars from a recipe on Birds and Blooms. Will let you know how they are. I also knit which dries the hands, also.

Pamela Johnson– Spray Clorox-cleanup under your nails when you wash your hands. Dry them and use “Corn Huskers” Lotion! Between gardening and woodworking, my hands can’t catch a break!

Margie Aldrich Smith Pope– I’m afraid I have dirt under my nails this morning as well. I’ve been transplanting and I never remember to put on gloves.

Kathy Ashburn Meinberg– Goat milk lotions

Katie Wellman- Before gardening, I scratch my nails over Bar soap to fill in where dirt normally would go, this helps with clean up after. Then after a good scrubbing I rub pure coconut oil into the dry skin… It keeps ot from cracking and smelling like a tropical island!

Ginny Theilacker– I swear by Gardner’s Therapy Cream by Crabtree and Evelyn!!! An absolute lifesaver for me!

Colleen Patrick Rucker– I found the greatest gardener’s hand soap in Seattle, WA. It’s little bits of lavender in it that help exfoliate my rough skin. I follow it with Angel Farms Deeply Moisturizing Lotion – also found at a kiosk in Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA. I live in north San Diego county, CA but make the trip north a few times a year to see our grandchild and to stock up on these lavender products :)

Susan Hunter– had to force myself to wear gloves. I prefer the nitrile coated ones, because they last longer and keep my hands moist without being too hot. All the previous mentioned products work at one time or another, but can’t always count on them due to temperature, climate, and a whole bunch of other conditions. At times if my hands get really bad I slather them with carbolated salve and put on a pair of hubby’s old white cotton socks and go to bed. Big difference in the morning! Good luck and wear make a conscious effort to wear gloves.

Deb Peltier– I’m glad to hear about the coconut oil remedy…I’m a gloves wearer unless I forget. My hands are always a mess, even with the gloves. I don’t like the “feel” of gloves, so my favorites are the brown jersey gloves with the little nobs on them (better grip) but I burn through them quickly. One thing I LOVE is from Bath and Body Works is their cuticle cream…it really helps after I’ve showered and cleaned up to rub that on my cuticles and the ends of my fingers.

Debbie Rust– Wear the gloves!!!! I’ve worn gloves since beginning to garden years ago and can’t work without them! Weather here in Seymour, IN is GORGEOUS today! Just came in for lunch and a short rest (needing lots more breaks these days!)

Garden Whimsies by Mary– I wear gloves and my hands still feel like this LOL. I love Burt’s Bees Hand Salve . . . a farmer’s friend.

Garden Knicknacks– Most of the time CRY! I have the broken lines around mine nails use liquid band-aid. Burns a little, but heals quickly. Can’t pull weeds with gloves on mine hands.

Diana L. Duggan– I am a retired operator/salon owner specialized in hands and feet. I am also an avid gardener and practicing artist and have been most of my adult life. What I do and have recommended to my clients, is to wear latex gloves (form fitting)

Nancy Myrick Gill– I wear snug fitting gloves and they are very helpful. I have developed a condition that is truly aggravated by gardening and that is tendonitis in both wrists. I’ve been to a hand surgeon and she prescribed an anti-inflammation cream, but even with that and no gardening over the winter, my wrists are still very uncomfortable and easily irritated. Any suggestions?

Little Red Riding Hood– Wear latex coated gardening gloves and when you do get dirty…gently clean hands with a mixture of spoonful of sugar and a spoonful of cooking oil…massage into hands, rinse with warm water, pat dry!

Cheryl Lewallen York– Wow glad to hear that I’m not the only one that does not wear gloves as often as I should! My husband is my stern reminder and he always wears gloves to work in. My problem is that I usually have no intention of weeding or picking up a few rocks when I go out, but it just happens. Lots of lotion (no particular kind) and since I haven’t a dish washer keeps them fairly clean. My nails are all different sizes though from breaking.

Donna Hoopes Shipley– Richie I wear gloves and still get dry hands. Lotion often!

Debbie J. Carter McMahon- I do not wear gloves, and like you when moving step stones they cut my hands up. I got lots of good info from all these comments.

Joann Payne- Oh I know the feeling.. I hate wearing gloves also… when my hands get as bad as yours I use Bag Balm or a first aid antibiotic ointment… that will heal the cuts fast… as.. Love your page… thanks for all the wonderful posts.

Cheryl St.Clair- Bag balm before you go to bed with socks on hands or those cotton gloves..

Marion Cronen– Try wearing rubber gloves…the kind that doctors wear .. they are cheap for a big box of them…the dirt doesn’t get under your nails .. you can deal with the smallest plants…and your hands kinda sweat in them so they aren’t going to dry out ..I wore them while digging and transplanting some plants and they worked great..

Ester De Weese– If I been out working and end up with rough dry hands, at night rub then down with vinegar. You may go to bed smelling like a salad but wake up with very soft hands. Once it a while it may take two nights, but if I’m gonna be home alone I’ll put it on again in the morning after my shower. Just don’t’ rub your eye! lol

Judy Reschner Enzmann– I wear leather gloves (when I remember) they are very soft and save my hands…2 pair for 19.00 at Sam’s. I put them everywhere so I will always have them handy! Living in Georgia with the red clay… it really messes up you hands and nails!

Carol Lee Barth– Crabtree and Evelyn Gardeners cream. Wear it year round and it has a refreshing smell too.

Blondeponders Garden and Duck tales- I learned the hard way WEAR GLOVES. Usually I would get a thorn or something and after a good soaking it would dislodge But one day I could not get a splinter/thorn under my nail bed. As the week went on nothing I could do helped and my finger got yellowy green,swollen and SORE! Off to Urgi-Care where the Doc took one look and said We’re goin fishing! Shot o Lodocaine and a small incision and I was almost good as new. Words to the wise WEAR GLOVES and get a tetanus shot!

3Beeze Homestead– I do wear my gloves. They may have wholes in the fingers but they work. I am always sorry when I don’t so I just do. Looking to get out and do some weeding in the flower beds today.

Tracy Narveson Bantel-  OMGoodness IS ME~ My wonderful nail lady that tends to all my cracks, loose skin torn on my fingertips, bleeding rose pricks, scars, re-nicked sores, she is always reminding me how beautiful my garden is!

Espe Del Sol- I also hate to wear gloves, I love the feel of the leaves and the softness of the petals, just don’t like the thorns, but since it comes with the territory I try to remember to protect my hands a little.

Sydney Van Buskirk Minor– I turned down a gift of a manicure for Valentines’ Day because I knew it would be readily ruined.

Kathy Zeller- ha!…same here, most of the time I end up putting on Vaseline and night time gloves

Connie Springer Schneider Baers– Pure Skin Repair-after I wash my hands with warm water and their soap I rub them gently with this salve. It feels wonderful and the pain, swelling, cracks go away. baerspure.com or on fb

The Meandering Path– Atlas 370 gloves ! In bulk from Palmflex.com.

Sally Scholes– I have always worn gloves since I ran into some Poison Oak. Never needed another reminder :(.

Kathy Johnson Swarms– I very rarely wear gloves. I love the feel of Gods good earth between my fingers and the more dirt under my nails the better!! Working in the soil, growing things, and harvesting the fruit of the earth makes me feel closer to God.

Rhonda Illar– I work in the garden center at home depot and when I am not there I am in my yard…God’s garden in my yard….I do not wear gloves …love to feel the earth between my fingers….so my hands are only pretty in the winter time…its so well worth it!!!!

Lynne Humphrey– I am guilty of not wearing gloves either. I have found that Mary Kay has an awesome hand lotion.

Becky Shaul Norris– I always put a heavy lotion on my hands and arms before I even go outside. I know when I get there I might forget my gloves and if i do, then the lotion protects and it also makes it much easier to clean my nails and fingers

Cary Itson– Working at a steel mill here in Japan, wishing I was in my garden :-}

Help my hands!

Help…my…hands!

Terresa Stoll– I found a hot wax hand spa at the thrift store. Bought some wonderful smelling wax for it and each morning I treat my self to a “dip” and sometimes two. Or before bed, put vaseline on them and wear white cotton gloves. Learned that from a friend that was a stewardess.

Sherry Heier Haskin- I wear a snug pair of latex gloves under my garden gloves. It keeps my hands dryer and when I need more dexterity to do a task, I pull the garden gloves off and my hands are still protected. Put hand cream on before you put on the latex gloves and you get a spa treatment while you work. They make non latex gloves, too. You can buy them at a pharmacy

Flea Market Gardening– THANKS, everyone,…I think we all may have learned from this post! :-) I’ll be looking up some of the gloves mentioned, will be more diligent about WEARING them, (even if they get wet) and will try soap under my nails, even though it will feel weird. Did you all notice the wedding rings on my ‘skeleton hand?’ ;-P Sue

More!

Soap and Garden- I wear gloves most of the time, taking them off for delicate weeding and separating, etc. I make and use Gardener’s products including soap that is gentle, yet effective at deep cleaning. I also use my lotion and at night, whipped butter to keep my hands in shape. Exfoliating with my Gardener’s Hand Scrub helps keep the skin looking nice!

Donna McCool– I use Dawn hand renewal with Olay to wash and put lotion on!

Jeanne Sammons– I HATE GLOVES but wear them almost all the time now…immune system is lacking now-a-days so I catch stuff…but still dry, rough, etc. ‘Aquaphilic’ Ointment (the white jar stuff, I call it)! Helps a lot!

Carol Swann- Yeah, noticed the rings…they’re in the wrong place. (No, they’re not, Carol) Crazy glue or liquid Band-Aid will heal those cracks in jig time

Elizabeth Torma Lombardo– Vaseline and white cotton gloves overnight! Makes your hands soft AND pulls out any remaining dir

Cindy Klein– WEAR GLOVES!!!

Jeanne Smith- Wear the GLOVES !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kathleen Hussey Switzer- WEAR GLOVES, LADY! Was that stern enough? :P

Would you?

March 2012 is a special month for us at Flea Market Gardening!  Not only is it our one year Birthday month, but we also have reached 10,000 ‘likes’ on the Facebook page.

I like this by Sheila Hatchett, who commented on our FB page :

Did I have a life before FMG?……oh yeah I did and it was a more restful one……because I am so inspired at all the lovely ideas….I am about to work my hubby and myself to death! Sure is fun though. I want to send pictures….but stil…l having problems.  I can’t seem to open my pictures to public even though I have it set up that way. Gonna keep trying though. Today at a yard sale I bought a wonderful rusty blue granite washing machine. Lots of rust and the tub is such a pretty blue.
What will the future bring?   I think a lot more gardening enjoyment….   ~~ Sue

Monika’s colorful desert garden

Monika’s Clauberg’s Nevada desert garden near Las Vegas was nearly destroyed when a water pipe broke, flooding and washing away her landscaping. She says, “Here it is the beginning of April and some things are coming back. Desert plants are most thankful for the littlest drink. We had to put big urns in the upper right hand corner,… the root system from a huge bush could not be totally removed. I am happy to report, things are filling in nicely.”

Here Monika points toward a small Verdin nest in the tree. Verdin are tiny, active songbirds, grey with yellow faces who live in the arid southwestern United States and northern Mexico.

In her garden she has a variety of heat loving plants, like Mojave and Firecracker penstemon, desert dandelions, desert asters and bottle brush. In Spring, pyracantha, stunning Apache plume, bright beavertail cactus and soft pink Mexican primrose bloom.

Monika, says, “Now I will brag a bit. I won 2nd price in the whole Las Vegas Valley for creative desert garden, made by owner. It was even a video in Europe, showing how we deal with the water shortage, and how one can have a green garden in the Mojave Desert.”

Right now replacing a thirsty lawn is a big trend in home landscaping and Monika proves that you can have a beautiful garden even in extreme drought conditions. This Spring she’ll be sitting pretty at her garden table with blooms all around her and her garden sign says it all…  ~~ Sue

Creating an altar to Nature’s beauty

You may have many nice objects in your home, but setting aside a special place for an ‘altar’ to Nature’s Beauty can be a joy to see  and a welcoming sight when you arrive home. This is where you can put the most special objects, fancy or humble, which express an appreciation of Mother Nature and feed your soul.

A buffet top or a front entrance table is a good place for a vase of flowers, an interesting seedpod or pine cone or a few of your favorite objects. Use your most beautiful vases there.  No keys, no mail.  Teach a child how to pick and arrange flowers. Or have them teach you!  No matter the season, a child will find something to cut and bring inside for this spot.

Don’t forget that outdoors is also a place where such a place can be set aside.

In the summer a patio table can be a place to set a pot, keeping it current and groomed of faded flowers, always looking fresh and nice.  No matter what the condition of the rest of the garden, this one place gives your eye a place to rest and as summer flowers fade still brings a bright spot of color. Even better is if the table is in view of the house.

In winter, in our area where it snows, it is a challenge to keep an attractive outdoor area with in view of the house, where melting snow and wood storage close by can be distracting and messy.  Creating a special place outside your windows can be a way to display snow patterns on branches or or other natural objects.

This season, take a look at places within view of your windows:

  • See what pots and seasonal items can be stashed away.
  • Bring in all your ceramic pots that hold water as they may freeze and crack.
  • Sugar pine cones can be stood inside pots as a decoration and when they catch snow it can be even prettier.
  • In an urn or large pot, decorative branches can be placed so they catch snow in different designs.
  • If you have evergreens in a Christmas tree shape, put them in view of your windows. They’re weather proof!

 

The designs of snow and ice can be very intricate and give a beautiful look to your garden even in Winter.  Having a focal point to set it off is fun!  ~~ Sue

Using ‘found’ broken pots in the garden

Oh, no! Someone has knocked down a pot of flowers and broken it! Ah, well, it happens… And sometimes you see a broken pot at a sale and think why in the world are they selling that? But wait, these can be bargains!

Here is what I do. First I started putting a ‘carpet’ of broken terra cotta pots under the hose bib.

Broken terracotta clay pots can still be used near the hose.

Broken terracotta clay pots can still be used near the hose.

A place was found to use this set of broken blue pots found at the flea market. I knocked them over and before I ever got to plant them!

Broken blue pots

What really hurt was this broken Bauer pot, a treasure found at a University Flea Market in my favorite color! Broken from being left out in freezing weather most likely. I found a spot for the pieces which pleases me, next to the Germander sage, Salvia chamaedryoides, a color match. Eases the pain a bit!

Broken Bauer pot

Broken Bauer pot, ouch, that hurts…

This idea below, seen on a garden tour, comes obviously from the heartbreak of a large broken pot. Planted with sedum and echeveria with small mushrooms placed inside it makes a now charming accent to a flower bed.

So if you see broken or flawed pots at a thrift store or tag sale, you know they can be used in the garden with a little creative imagination!

In which, I clean up my potting bench

The difference between trash and junk
I posted a picture of my terribly messy potting bench area on my FB page, Flea Market Gardening, and asked for help with what I should do with it. They posted tons of ideas and I’ve been working on it for the last couple weeks. Here is the “before”:

An awful mess...and unuseable

An awful mess...and unuseable

Why do we pile things up against a wall like this?

Even worse, weedy and depressing

Even worse, weedy and depressing

I bit the bullet and cleared everything out of the area, which is on the side of our 8×16 ft shed. It looked worse than before! This shed is seen as you enter the back patio area and where friends usually arrive. Distressing! I read through the comments again that the Flea Marketers had offered and went out to look over my stash of junk behind the goat shed. Continue reading

Garden orb of modest materials

Everyone has seen these garden spheres in the garden, but recently after finding a bowling ball at Oakhurst’s “Clutter Clearance” I decided to try decorating one. I was inspired by an example found online on Google images, bought some bags of ‘gems’ used for filling vases to hold stems straight.

First the materials were gathered, 5 or 6 bags of 'gems', stones or tiles

First the materials were gathered, 5 or 6 bags of 'gems', stones or tiles and 2 tubes of G.E. Silicone II for outdoors, in clear.

Start with a clean and prepped bowling ball. Use rubbing alcohol or vinegar to get any wax finish off. Sand lightly, then wash and dry the ball before painting. I filled the two smaller holes with tin foil and just glued right over them. Leave one hole uncovered and positioned at the bottom so if you want you can set it onto a piece of rebar in the garden. It helps to print out a photo of a design you like from Google images, shown. I used 5 0r 6 bags of ‘gems’, shown, and 2 tubes of G.E. Silicone II for outdoors, in clear.

With pencil I marked the top, opposite the largest hole and  cut a five pointed star for a design to fill in

With pencil I marked the top, opposite the largest hole and cut a five pointed star for a design to fill in

I used pencil to mark a dot on the top, opposite the hole I left unfilled. Then I drew freehand lines vertically to mark four sections, then used a paper cut-out of a star to trace around as a starting point. Continue reading
