Best Gardening Boot review

From sneakers to a full boot, it's an individual gardener's preference. I myself prefer the mid rise garden boot as well as an old pair of sneakers but when digging is needed the mid boot fits the bill.

I have researched many a garden clog and although they are great, I find the dirt finds it's way inside my shoe and that drives me crazy. That is why I prefer the mid rise boot and a garden boot at that!

Most are made of breathable neoprene that allows not only for durability but easy clean up as well. You can get as dirty as you need to ( or want to (lol) ) and spray the boots off when you're finished.

These boots aren't  just for your gardening season! They are great for winter or trucking around town in the rain. When looking for the perfect new boot this spring season, remember comfort is a factor. The boot needs to have a combination of breathable neoprene and natural rubber in order to keep your feet warm in the winter, cool in the spring and dry.

Also, try to find boots with a wick-away lining to help wick away sweat and odor. Last but certainly not least, a contoured EVA footbed is what you will need for comfort while digging or whatever you decide to do.

Here are 3 of my favorite boots:
Women’s Muckster II Mid Boots
Women’s Harper Boots by Bogs


Classic Rose Garden Mid Boots by Bogs.


These boots can be found at gardeners.com. This is a good online site for gardening supplies. I am in no way affiliated with the site but I wanted to share with you due to loving their boots and wears.

I hope you found this review helpful and if you feel like it, leave me a note below!

Farm to Table Recipe: Asparagus

Great tasting food starts with good wholesome ingredients and nothing beats harvesting from your very own garden. 

Great food make great recipes!


From farm to table recipes are not just an ongoing trend but a need to have the best food possible to feed ourselves and our families. The freshest fruit and vegetables will be sure to make your family come back for more because the taste is unbelievable compared to produce that has been sitting around waiting for shipment to markets and grocers.

If you don't have the room or time to grow your own food, you can go local by buying from your local farmer's market. Check with your local agriculture office to see what's available in your area.

The local farmer's market may also have recipes, fresh eggs and even baked goods such as various homemade breads to offer.
One of my favorite veggies is the asparagus. I love the fresh flavor and it's great grilled or roasted.

February Gardening Tips

In my state (Tennesse) and in most states, February is a month of transition in the garden preparing for spring blooms and growth.

It's time to do some good old garden cleaning by removing old foilage, weed control and getting rid of various debris such as twigs. If you don't shred your leaves in the fall and use them as a great organic mulch then you might want to consider it, otherwise it's time to clean them from your beds.

Also, you can trim the liriope (monkey grass) before new growth starts. In larger areas, use a string trimmer.

Warm season lawns (dormant) can be spot treated for weeds either by pulling or by applying a broadleaf weed control. 

February is a good time to start seeds indoors so you will be ready for spring. Depending on your grow zone, flower and vegetable planting is right around the corner. Below is a vegetable planting chart that can help.


VEGETABLE CHART:



**Tilling or turning your vegetable garden is essential before planting and now is a good time to do that.**


Flower bed and garden maintenance are not the only things to consider this month. Birds are looking for new nests, especially the blue bird, so give these little guys a nice place to live this spring by cleaning out your bird houses or replacing old and damaged ones. Birds are a great way to encourage organic soil improvement.

Be sure to take care of these little guys!


February can be both a fun and busy month but also exciting as we look ahead for spring!
