Happy Friday everyone! We have been having some of the most incredible weather I can remember in all my springs in the Pacific Northwest. We are having record breaking temperatures and to be honest, it feels just like summer around here! Which of course mean lots of time working in the yard. I’ve been on a serious mission trying to get the yard around our home in great condition and adding lots of plants and flowers to increase the curbside appeal. Well, we live on fifty acres so we don’t exactly have a ‘curbside’ but our home is part of the vineyard and we are starting to have events on our property and I want it to look beautiful. When I garden I typically just wear some old grubby clothes but I am was so excited when Duluth Trading Co. sent me some great gardening gear to try out because of the functionality of it all.
I chose the Plaid Armachillo Work Shirt because it is made to work in warm conditions allowing your skin to breath. I also chose the Quick Dry Pants because they are light weight on and wick away moisture. I think they would be awesome hiking pants too! Duluth Trading Co. also sent me the Oil Cloth Day Tote which is perfect because it will allow me to carry my gardening tools all around our property as I get to work.
Here I am working on one of our side gardens. I’m so excited with progress I’m making and I can’t wait to see these little babies grow! Note: I recommend ordering a size down from what you would originally order. They seem to run a tad bit big Hence why I am sitting and not standing in the picture below, my pants were falling off!
