King -

My hands too.  I wear work gloves a lot more these days.

Spud, I think of Bill Maher as elitist and not always well informed.  It's nice we have an atheist comedian but he is too snarky for me.  Crocs are not too durable, but they are comfortable and well padded.   It's OK for an elitist to put down the masses, when he has access to all of the comforts life can provide.

 

King I used to go barefoot too.  Not any more, but I know what you are saying.

 

When it's wet I wear duck shoes.  When it's dry I wear hiking shoes.  We are still in the wet season.

My hands take more abuse from tools then my feet do

I have been running around barefoot all my life I can tell soil types how wet it is all from my feet

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
Comment by Idaho Spud on May 4, 2014 at 8:04am

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
