Dana has a fishing vest that she wears in the garden. This gives her a lot of pockets and not much bulk when she needs to be on her knees. She is also in the process of converting a cooking apron by turning up the last 10 inches or so and making a large number of pockets in it by sewing lines vertically from the open end to the folded line. Sounds like this might work. Will find out soon. She also uses the 5 gal bucket apron but only when working on a small area. It works pretty good if you are not moving around a lot.

I am so glad to see the humor at the end of your subject tag here. I hope
not to get into the shape you describe , but the larger my gardens get , the
more I fear it!
This year was the best year we have had ,yet, since it was as near weed free
as I can imagine. We did something right but what was it, and will we
remember to do it again? I keep a lot of notes but am sure I do not note
everything, it is so hard to remember not to go into the garden without a
pad, pencil, pruner, bags for seed and .....I need more than an aporn with
pockets here. What do you do? How can I save steps? My son just gave me a
pocketed thing that fits over a 5 gal bucket. I am going to try it, perhaps
it is the answer. Sorry for the rant..
