Gardener's Hands

The most important tool in your garden is YOU.  Just as sharpening your ax is important, so is taking care of yourself.

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.  Abraham Lincoln

Your hands are one of your most important tools.  Taking good care of your hands is just as important as sharpening, oiling, and repairing your garden tools.  I have ran across a few resources to help you prepare your hands for gardening season and wanted to share them with you.

I will be doing a post very soon on caring for your tools, stay tuned.

My husband takes that quote very seriously, LOL! Every year I vow not to get "gardener's hands", you know, the cracked, raw, permanently stained black on the weed pulling fingers... but even though I stock up on Cornhuskers, Lanolin, gloves, etc I can't seem to keep it up! Maybe this year...
