Gardening in Style
I'm a beginner gardener....not quite to a "green thumb stage" but well on my way! This year I've been taking care of Large Topiary trees, which I absolutely love. I will admit I was completely intimidated with keeping them shaped correctly but it turns out it was quite easy! We have trees, shrubs and potted planted. We are hoping to purchase 5.6 acres very soon to start our garden and homesteading adventures. I love the idea of having lots of fruit trees! But as we trek through our potential property I realize that I will need high boots for the kind of work that will be required to maintain such a garden and our chickens. Many people have suggested lots of black rubber farming boots. Perfect for the mud and great to be able to just hose them off. But I have to admit that even though I love our plan of living off of our own land, I hate to think that I will be losing my great sense of style. :) So as a nice compromise of Great Style and Easy Clean Up, I found these fantastic JOULES WELLY boots. These two are my favorites but there are a lot of different amazing styles. Check them out!
