Re: gloves

Thanks for all the info re gloves.  I am going to try the Nitrile.  I
normally don't wear gloves, except when I am doing brush clearing and
working in areas with poison oak.  Last summer I used the latex gloves but
they do tear easily and are so sweaty, but I want something I can dispose of
after one wearing -- don't trust washing them out!  I already have a little
poison oak from a trek down my hill and the leaves aren't even out yet and I
would have sworn I didn't touch any!
    Theresa, I also noted the kind you got at Capital Nursery.  I was just
there Saturday but although they have lots of stuff, the drought tolerant
annuals and perennials mostly aren't in yet.  Inspiring nonetheless.
