King, how do you develop feet tough enough to go bare?  Do you have to put-up with the pain until you develop thick calluses?

I go bare

I wear Crocs shoes in the garden.  They have no big tread to carry dirt and pebbles, at least not as much as many other shoes, and when worn several years, they have no tread at all.  Plus, they can be hosed-down easily without hurting them.  They also have good ventilation on hot days, and are warm on cold days.

Of course, the main reason I wear them is because they're the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn.  I wear them almost everywhere, despite what Bill Maher says.

They do easily let pebbles and stuff in under your feet which is annoying, unless you wear the ones without holes so close to the ground.

king, what a wonderful garden you have planned. Your harvest festival will be grand!

We have a harvest festival when most things are at their peak. People roam through the garden, picking what they want for their appetizers. Then I serve things from the garden, i.e. cole slaw, cucs in vinegar, roasted autumn vegetables, with lots of garlic. I usually serve frozen fruits from the garden with Greek yogurt or ice cream. Yummmm

I wear New Balance with inserts for better arch support. The stuff of an old lady's attire.
