If you want to wear something that is a bit more durable on mucky ground than a shoe, especially when the terrain is deeper dirt or mud, the Muck Scrub Boot from Garden Shoes Online should be your first consderation.
This is a boot designed for messy chores and working outdoors. Hosing them off cleans them in a snap. They are waterproof, comfortable and also come in fun colors as well as the traditional green. It has a stretch-fit binding at the top that snugs your calf to keeps warmth in and the breathable Airmesh lining keeps your foot dry(from perspiration).
The multi ribbed tread gives you good traction and the seamless, easy to clean rubber overlay makes it waterproof. Even the top flex foam bootie is waterproof as well as snag resistant. It has a kick rim for hands free removal and natural rubber reinforcement in the toe, heel, achilles, and shank areas that offer extra protection when working with tools. If you want a boot that goes on and off easily and keeps your feet dry and comfortable, the Muck Scrub Boot is a great choice.

I found some great old photos in the attic today. I have a trunk that belonged to my husband’s grandfather. He had an envelope filled with old photos and other papers. As you can see in the second photo, they were dated June 17, 1917 and written on them also was “in our backyard”.
Among the pictures were some which really gave me a chuckle. I am not quite sure what it is they are doing here but it is somehow garden related. Each person has a different gardening tool. There’s a hoe, a rake, a watering can, a milk bottle that they are dumping, and they also have a bug sprayer. They have on aprons or smocks, even the men. The first photo has a random broom hanging over them. Hopefully it was just silliness. Have any ideas?
