Re: gloves


Have you tried Aquahands from GardenWorks for your pond stuff? I love them,
and even my husband, who hates gloves, uses them to keep warm and dry in the
late fall, winter and spring. They're made by GardenWorks in Bellevue,
Washington, and sold at www.createagarden.com as well as many local pond
places here.

And Libby, The Weeders by GardenWorks have longish fingers for their size,
as do Fiskars. I think the Fiskars might be even longer, though I've washed
them all so much it's hard to tell.  GardenWorks also has Extra Large sizes.

By the way, if anyone hates sunscreen, but recognizes the necessity, Sun
Dab, also by Garden Works, doesn't stink like other sunscreens do. It has a
bit of Lavender in it, which seems to help repel some of the bugs, too.
